Abstract

The field of biomaterials is inherently interdisciplinary. In many cases, the success of biomaterial projects relies heavily on the availability of diverse expertise and unique resources. A case study on how a challenging hard tissue replacement biomaterials project can be successfully pursued with the availability of interdisciplinary engineering education programs and multiuser research facilities is presented. The advantages of an interdisciplinary department, such as the Department of Chemical, Bio and Materials engineering at Arizona State University, and how the barriers to conducting interdisciplinary research are more easily overcome in an academic setting are discussed.
