The request of biomimetic materials for regenerative medicine is strongly increasing due to the raising of the number of pathologies related to life-styles and the progressive ageing of the population.

The sectors of interest are orthopaedics, neurosurgery, maxillo-facial-dental and aesthetic surgery; in consequence of the loss of tissue due to traumas, degenerative pathologies or deformity, all these fields require bioactive and bio-resorbable scaffolds, able to be integrated by the human body, colonized by cells and remodelled so as to re-build the missing part of tissue.

Similarly, for the traditional prosthetic and dental sectors, new nano-structured materials are being developed, characterized by very low friction coefficient and very high resistance to fracture and wear.
