Rapid developments are afoot in the field of biomaterials, and are likely to have major effects on patient care soon. But science isn't the only thing defining the pace of progress.
Traditionally, biomaterials have functioned primarily as implants, with only basic understanding of their interactions with the body apart from biocompatibility. A new generation of biomaterials will actively make use of interactions with biological functions, promising new capabilities and...
Robert Langer has spent more than 30 years working with biomaterials and has seen their development from simple implants to complex multifunctional interfaces with the body. He shares his vision of the field's origins and what the future holds with Nature Materials.
Sustained gene knockdown by the aid of a well-known biodegradable polymer has shown that old materials can still be used to solve new problems.
Spray-coating of multilayer films on fibre mats yields conformal coatings, opening up new possibilities for the fabrication of protective clothing and reactive membranes.
Nanoparticles containing a silver iodine core and a polymer shell have superionic conductance even near room temperature, showing promise for a new generation of electrochemical devices.
By using light to control the degradation of hydrogel components in space and time, researchers have generated a tool to help them reconstruct functional biological tissues in a culture dish.
