Spotlight on biomaterials

With the recent boom in 3D printing and the increasing introduction of hydrogels and scaffolds in research and clinical trials, biomaterials are playing a key role in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering more than ever before. However, in order to be successfully translated to the clinic and/or market, challenges such as biocompatibility, regulation and scalability as well as the ongoing debate of complexity versus simplicity need to be taken into consideration. The spotlight on biomaterials will be a 3-month focus on biomaterials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, which will feature a variety of content covering various themes and issues in the field.
