Abstract

Advances in tissue engineering and drug delivery are often enabled by the development of new biomaterials, designed specifically for such purposes. Advances in synthetic degradable biomaterials that permit in situ transformations from liquid precursors to solid final forms that enable the biomaterial to be directly recognized by the biochemical features of the cells and that make use of novel approaches to material fabrication and self-assembly have been made.
