The study of biomaterials applies to all materials that interact with the human body, and at UF, we are at the forefront of biomaterial development and commercialization. Our research tackles tissue regeneration, degradable bioceramics, metal implants and more. We also study biomaterials for bone repair, to heal wounds, treat cancer and even test some of them in space!
