About this book

This book highlights the latest, cutting-edge advances in implantable biomaterials. It brings together a class of advanced biomaterials in two highly active research areas, namely implants and tissue scaffolds, to underline their respective functional requirements for further development. It is unique in providing a full range of methodological procedures, including materials syntheses, characterisation, cellular tests and mathematical modelling. Covering metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials commonly used in biological applications and clinical therapeutics, it is a valuable resource for anyone wanting to further their understanding of the latest developments in implantable biomaterials. Focusing on biomedical applications in implants and scaffolds, it provides methodological guides to this rapidly growing field.

Qing Li and Yiu-Wing Mai are both professors at the University of Sydney, School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering.

About the authors

Dr. Qing Li received his PhD from the University of Sydney, Australia in 2000. He previously worked at Cornell University (USA) and James Cook University (Australia). Qing Li is currently a Professor in biomedical engineering at the University of Sydney. Dr. Qing Li has proven expertise in computational biomechanics and biomaterials with focuses on implants and scaffolds. In his career, he has been awarded an Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship (2001-03) and a Future Fellowship (2013-17), respectively, by Australian Research Council.

Professor Yiu-Wing Mai is a mechanical engineering alumnus of the University of Hong Kong graduated BSc (Eng) & Williamson Prizeman in 1969, PhD in 1972 and DSc in 1999. He also obtained DEng from the University of Sydney in 1999. He previously worked in the US (University of Michigan and NIST), the UK (Imperial College) and Hong Kong (HKUST, CityU, HKU and PolyU). Prof Mai is currently University Chair and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sydney. Prof Mai is a highly cited researcher in materials science and is distinguished for his seminal work on fracture mechanics and advanced composite materials. He has published a number of papers on wound healing, biomaterials for implants and scaffolds. He is Fellow of the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Australian Academy of Science, and the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering.
