Synthetic materials (biomaterials) are used in devices and procedures that repair damaged or diseased tissues (biological materials) in the human body. The reliability of this new system of materials depends on the continued health of the tissue and the continued performance of the biomaterial. If care is not taken, the biomaterial can cause a toxic response in the tissue, but the tissue and associated fluids can also be detrimental to the biomaterial. This project focuses on the reliability at the interface between the tissue and the biomaterial and is open to research into measurements in the areas of materials degradation, corrosion, cell response, biological system response, and nanoparticle interactions.
