Materials and Devices for implants and regenerative medicine

Biomedical materials for implants and regenerative medicine is one the most of fascinating and intriguing field of research in which many disciplines come together to develop new health solutions.
In this area, the current short-medium term research aims to develop nanomaterials interacting with biological tissue in the body and/or acting as medical devices for controlled release of drugs, disinfection and dissolving components.

The most challenge future goal is to develop smart nanomaterials able to trigger and instruct the regenerative powers of our own bodies to restore diseased tissue and organs and/or prevent degeneration.
In this Special Session a survey of the most innovative approaches for implants and osteo-chondral regeneration based on nanomaterials will be presented.
