This note provides an
introduction to the interactions between cells and the surfaces of biomaterials.
It covers the following topics: surface chemistry and physics of selected
metals, polymers, and ceramics; surface characterization methodology;
modification of biomaterials surfaces; quantitative assays of cell behavior in
culture; biosensors and microarrays; bulk properties of implants; and acute and
chronic response to implanted biomaterials.
