About this book

Biomaterials as a research theme is highly socially relevant with impactful applications in

human healthcare. In this context, this book provides a state-of-the-art perspective on

biomaterials research in India and globally. It presents a sketch of the Indian landscape

against the backdrop of the international developments in biomaterials research.

Furthermore, this book presents highlights from major global institutes of importance,

and challenges and recommendations for bringing inventions from the bench to the

bedside. It also presents valuable information to those interested in existing issues

pertaining to developing the biomaterials research ecosystem in developing countries.

The contents also serve to inspire and educate young researchers and students to take up

research challenges in the areas of biomaterials, biomedical implants, and regenerative

medicine. With key recommendations for developing frontier research and policy, it

also speaks to science administrators, policymakers, industry experts, and entrepreneurs on

helping shape the future of biomaterials research and development.
