What are Composite Biomaterial Systems?
Made up of multiple parts/phases.
- A naturally-derived material, such as human tissue (e.g. bone, cartilage, tendon, etc.).
- A material developed for biomedical applications (e.g. implantable biomaterials for the reconstruction of bone).
Representative of our approach to research and development.
