Synopsis

A significant proportion of modern medical technology has been developed through biomimetics, which is biologically inspired by studying pre-existing functioning systems in nature. Typical biomimetically inspired biomaterials include nano-biomaterials, smart biomaterials, hybrid biomaterials, nano-biocomposites, hierarchically porous biomaterials and tissue scaffolds. This important book summarises key research in this important field.The book is divided into two parts: Part one is devoted to the biomimetics of biomaterials themselves while part two provides overviews and case studies of tissue engineering applications from a biomimetics' perspective. The book has a strong focus on cutting edge biomimetically inspired biomaterials including chitin, hydrogels, calcium phosphates, biopolymers and anti-thrombotic coatings. Since many scaffolds for skin tissue engineering are biomimetically inspired, the book also has a strong focus on the biomimetics of tissue engineering in the repair of bone, skin, cartilage, soft tissue and specific organs.With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Biomimetic biomaterials is a standard reference for both the biomaterials research community and clinicians involved in such areas as bone regeneration, skin tissue and wound repair.

Andrew J Ruys has been Professor and Director of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Sydney since 2003. His Bachelors Degree (Honours 1 - 1987) was in Ceramic Engineering, and his Doctorate (1992) was also in Ceramic Engineering. He has worked in bioceramics and advanced ceramics research for 30 years, and has been an active participant as researcher, educator, and industrial consultant for this entire time. For nearly 30 years he has served as an industrial consultant in the world-changing applications of advanced ceramics in wear-resistance linings in mineral processing, anti-corrosion-resistant vessels, high-temperature gas-seals, and numerous other world-changing applications. The most important of the advanced ceramics, and the bioceramics, is alumina, the topic of this proposed book. I have been involved with alumina for this entire 30 years. Professor Ruys serves on three editorial boards, and is a reviewer for 24 scientific Journals. He has been teaching bioceramics, biomaterials, medical device technology for three decades, and also has experience teaching dental materials, industrial ceramics, chemistry, physics, and general engineering, a total of 27 different university units of study in the last 30 years. His experience is unique, spanning as it does 3 decades in bioceramics and industrial advanced ceramics, with an ongoing association with alumina for that entire time.
