Biomaterials is a field that focuses on augment human tissues or development of materials. Tissue engineering is one of the subsets of biomaterials and which is expanding rapidly for the treatment of a wide range of medical conditions. The study of biomaterials is called biomaterials science or biomaterials engineering. It has experienced steady and strong growth over its history, with many companies investing large amounts of money into the development of new products. materials can be derived either from nature or synthesized in the laboratory using a variety of chemical approaches utilizing metallic components, polymers, ceramics or composite materials. They are often used and/or adapted for a medical application, and thus comprises whole or part of a living structure or biomedical device which performs, augments, or replaces a natural function.
