Tissue Engineering
Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary field combining the engineering and life science principles and technologies to develop functional substitutes used for tissue/organ regeneration/replacement. Tissue engineering has gained increasing interest during the last two decades owing to its great potentials. The final goal in tissue engineering is to use cells, signalling factors and biomimetic scaffolds to develop biological constructs for the repair of damaged tissue/organ. Recent advances in biomaterials and stem cell research...

The biomechanics is the mechanical analysis of the organs and organisms and application of mechanics to biological systems. In biomechanics, cell mechanisms, movement and growth of organs, bone structure and the function of the arterial system are studied. Also issues such as visco-elasticity, rheology, mechanics of soft and hard tissue (creep, fatigue and failure), non-Newton fluid, repair, hemodynamic, ergonomics, bio..

Currently materials used in the body can be classified in groups of metals, polymers, ceramics & composites.Application of biomaterials is affected by the   reaction of the materials & body and they should be biologically adaptive.  In other words, the effect of body environment on the materials and the effect of materials on the body have to be considered.Biopolymers, bioceramics...
