There were eleven symposia conducted with a focus on biomaterials under the sub-class of 'Biomaterials and Soft Matter' at the MRS 2013 fall meeting. Symposia H, C, D and J have been combined into this proceedings volume. The aim of this volume is to provide state-of-the-art research in biomaterials and bio-inspired materials - their structures, properties and applications.
