Materials scientists, chemists, biologists, physicists, bioengineers and clinicians join together in this volume to focus on the formation, function and structural characterization of biologically formed organic and inorganic materials. Recent developments in bioinspired materials synthesis are also featured. In all of these areas, understanding the structures and kinetics of the interfaces between crystals and other ordered or disordered molecular assemblies requires consideration of multiple chemical species, intermolecular interactions, self assembly, molecular anisotropy, and the structure of the interface between fluid and solid phases. Of particular interest are new materials engineered to replace or restore tissue functions. Topics include: materials in natural biological tissues; imaging and characterization techniques; organic biomaterials--proteins and peptides; interface engineering, patterning and biocompatibility; composite biomaterials--bones and teeth; biomaterials; tissue engineering; biomimetics, sensors and nanotechnology; and materials for drug and gene delivery.
