The special issue: “EUROMAT 2009 – MATERIALS FOR HEALTHCARE” in Advanced Biomaterials has been now published

This special issue was edited by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini. The 15 papers published in this issue were selected from the high quality contributions presented at the Euromat 2009 Conference, held in Glasgow, UK, in September 2009. The papers cover a great variety of biomaterial systems, i.e. biopolymers, bioactive glasses, bioceramics, metal alloys and composites for biomedical applications encompassing tissue engineering and regeneration, drug delivery, functional and antibacterial coatings, biomimetic nanomaterials and molecular dynamics simulations of biomaterials.
