Biomedical polymers


  • The Biomedical Polymers Laboratory performs research on the use of polymers in a diversity of clinical disciplines, such as orthopedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology and cardiovascular surgery, where chemical, physical and biological issues are inherently interrelated

Research provided

The laboratory foci are in seven primary areas:

  • Biodegradable polymers: Design, synthesis and development of new systems
  • Tissue engineering: Tailoring polymers for scaffolding and regeneration of functional human tissue, especially arterial reconstruction
  • Plasma surface treatments: Surface modification of polymers by means of polymerization of functionalization under plasma conditions
  • Biomedical injectables: Development of novel polymeric systems for in situ generated implants
  • Nano-sized polymeric constructs: Engineering of nanometric constructs, such as scaffolds for tissue regeneration, or vectors for advanced delivery of bioactive agents
  • Biomedical composites: Fiber reinforced polymers for hard and soft tissue implants and prostheses
  • Medical devices: Design and development of medical devices


  • The Biomedical Polymers Laboratory has can take projects from the conceptual level through to clinical set up. The lab has highly skilled, experienced and dedicated researchers.
