Composites (08f)

#272 - Biomedical Composites (08F06)
Biomedical composites are materials composed of both a matrix and reinforcing phase, where the materials used are biocompatible, having potential application in such areas as drug delivery, tissue scaffolding, implants and prostheses. Contributions are sought that address new developments concerning the chemistry, development, processing, structure, analysis, and properties of biomedical composites.
