The book is divided into two parts: Part one is devoted to the biomimetics of biomaterials themselves while part two provides overviews and case studies of tissue engineering applications from a biomimetics' perspective. The book has a strong focus on cutting edge biomimetically inspired biomaterials including chitin, hydrogels, calcium phosphates, biopolymers and anti-thrombotic coatings. Since many scaffolds for skin tissue engineering are biomimetically inspired, the book also has a strong focus on the biomimetics of tissue engineering in the repair of bone, skin, cartilage, soft tissue and specific organs.
With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Biomimetic biomaterials is a standard reference for both the biomaterials research community and clinicians involved in such areas as bone regeneration, skin tissue and wound repair.

Andrew J Ruys is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and has served as Director of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Sydney since 2003. His Bachelors Degree (Honours 1 - 1987) was in Ceramic Engineering, and his Doctorate (1992) was also in Ceramic Engineering.
He has worked in bioceramics and advanced ceramics research for 30 years, and has been an active participant as researcher and educator, for this entire time. He also has extensive experience as an industrial consultant in the world-changing applications of advanced ceramics in wear-resistance linings in mineral processing, anti-corrosion-resistant vessels, high-temperature gas-seals, bioceramics, ballistic ceramics, and numerous other world-changing applications. The most important of the advanced ceramics, and the bioceramics, is alumina, the topic of this book. Professor Ruys has been involved with alumina for this entire 30 years.
Professor Ruys serves on three editorial boards, and is a reviewer for 24 scientific Journals. He has been teaching bioceramics, industrial ceramics, biomaterials, medical device technology, dental materials, chemistry, physics, and general engineering, a total of 27 different university units of study in the last 30 years.
His experience is unique, spanning as it does 3 decades in ceramics, bioceramics and industrial advanced ceramics, with an ongoing association with alumina for that entire time.
