About this Research Topic
Mechanics of biomaterials are essential for prevention, diagnosis, planning, and treatment of diseases. The focus of this research topic is on applying the engineering principle, material science and biology for better understanding the mechanical behaviors of biomaterials and developing new materials. It covers both biological and replacement materials ranging from cellular scale to organ scale, the implantation devices for improving the function of biomaterials, as well as the interface between the biomaterials and devices. The modeling techniques and experimental characterizations of biological and replacement materials could be used to reveal the structure-function relationship within diseased and non-diseased tissues at multiple scales and to develop new treatment solutions, and new biomaterials.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
