Over the last twenty years, biomaterials have seen tremendous growth in the engineering of calcified tissues and the regeneration of both soft and hard tissues. A growing number of elderly people are suffering from age-related illnesses and diseases, which highlights the need for innovative biomaterials that may effectively calcify hard tissue, replace damaged tissue, and encourage the body's ability to regenerate itself. Bioceramics, such as calcium phosphates, bioactive glasses, glass-ceramics and their composites, have great potential to mimic the structure of native calcified tissue. They are used to design and fabricate scaffolds of desired structures for the repair, restoration, reconstruction, and regeneration of diseased parts of the body.

The Department of Ceramic Engineering is mainly focusing on the following topics:

  • Biomaterials for orthopaedics
  • Degradable ceramics for tissue regeneration
  • Piezoelectric biomaterials
  • Piezoelectric biomaterials
  • Ceramics in drug delivery
  • 3D printing of bioceramics
