Biomaterials

Biomaterials are those materials that interact with biological systems. Biomaterials are often used in medical technologies to augment or replace a natural function. MTIF has extensive capabilities in the development, fabrication and testing of biomaterials. Our expertise and world class facilities enable partners to access a variety of approaches including electrospinning, 3D printing of composites including polymers and metals as well as solid form fabrication. We can engineer further surface modifications in the form of functional coatings to modify the release of therapeutic agents or to control cellular function. We have a variety of analytical capabilities essential in guiding successful biomaterial development including techniques to assess biological attributes, chemical composition, magnetic properties, mechanical loading, porosity, release profiles and stiffness.
