Abstract

Biocompatibility pertains to the information transfer or the communication between a material and nearby cells in a biological environment. These communication signals are based on glycoprotein or glycosaminoglycan structures that are either immobilized or diffusable and are biochemical in nature. These biochemical communication signals can be exploited in the development of material design for wound healing and tissue engineering. Basic operations for in biomaterials communication are discussed.
