The dynamic face of the biomaterials world is so multi-faceted that it is very difficult for the expert and end-user to keep up routinely with promising claims and advances. Materials technologies relevant to advancing biomaterials toward clinical applications span an enormous and unprecedented intellectual and technological bandwidth.
Areas to consider now include aspects of molecular, computational, recombinant, biotechnological, synthetic combinatorial, nanotechnological, hybrid composite, microbial, cell- and tissue-based, device innovation and quality systems management, preclinical and clinical testing, regulatory dimensions, and life-cycle analytical contributions to the global field and associated industry.
This Work develops and mines most of this 'bandwidth' significant to the biomaterials field. Significantly, it is developed by the world's experts in hundreds of related biomaterials areas. The result is a continuum of rich information appropriate for many audiences from these experts. The treatise addresses the current status of nearly all biomaterials in the field, their strengths and weaknesses, their future prospectus, appropriate analytical methods and testing, device applications and performance, emerging candidate materials as competitors and disruptive technologies, and strategic insights for those entering and operational in diverse biomaterials applications, research and development, regulatory management, and commercial aspects.
