The Biomaterials Group is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.
The evolution of biomaterials has brought chemists working in close collaboration with engineers, biologists, materials scientists and clinicians. In order for this area to progress rapidly it is crucial that these diverse specialists understand the requirements of each other and work together efficiently. Also, as the field develops, molecular aspects are becoming more important and it is here that the chemistry of biomaterials is increasing in importance.
