Biomaterials play crucial roles in reconstructive surgery, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Protein engineering offers powerful solutions to the challenges posed by the creation of well-defined, multifunctional materials that guide cell and tissue behavior. Especially challenging is the complex interplay between mechanical and biological properties in determining the success or failure of biomaterials designed for clinical use.
