Biomaterials is the application of engineering materials to the production of medical devices and diagnostic products.

In the last decade, advances in biology, espe- cially at the molecular level, have lead to the design and development of new classes of materials derived from natural sources.

These include molecularly engineered materials, hybrid materials and devices, biomimetic or synthetic biological materials, and other bio- logically related materials. Biomaterials covers current and traditional applications for biologically and pharmacologically active materials as well as materials used in such applications as tissue and organ engineering, diagnostic products, and drug delivery.

Biomechanics covers the behavior of biological tissues and fluids to incorporate complexities ranging from nonlinear viscoelasticity to non-Newtonian flows. Biomechan- ics includes both biofluid mechanics and biosolid mechanics at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organ-system levels.

Molecular and cellular biomechanics is integrated with the macroscopic behavior of tissues and organs. This is put into practice by the modeling of various biological systems. An example of biomechanics is ergonomics, wherein eve- ryday devices, such as chairs and desks, are designed to reduce stress and injury to the body.

Standard methods of signal analysis have been used for characterizing rather than for elucidating the mechanisms.

Biosignals treats signals from a variety of sources; standard methods of signal analysis, including transform and statistical techniques and their relationships; methods of signal generation, fractal analysis methods for signals with different charac- teristics, methods for analyzing chaotic signals, and approaches to reviewing data to de- termine or distinguish among possible origins.

Biosystems, which uses modern biology, has given us the tools to identify and characterize molecules and cells, the fundamental building blocks of organ systems.

Un- derstanding how molecules and cells function in tissues, organs and organ systems is the domain of biological systems analysis. Whereas molecular biology has focused on reduc- tionism, biomedical engineering is in a unique position to move biology to the next fron- tier where synthesis will lead to an understanding of the function of complex systems.

Biosystems analysis integrates properties of biological systems with current tools of sys- tems analysis.

Biotransport phenomena covers transport processes from the organ to the sub- cellular level. Quantitative understanding of biological processes is based on the funda- mentals of the complementary processes of mass, momentum and energy transport. Transport of ions, substrates, proteins, viruses and cells is a central issue for the quantita- tive understanding of biological systems.

It builds an integrated picture of the convection, diffusion, permeation, and reaction kinetics in the circulation, through capillary beds, and through the tissues of the body.

While using the fundamentals of transport phenomena for understanding membrane transport, cellular and tissue energetics, enzymatic regulation and metabolism, it also considers how data from microsensors, tissue samples or regional concentrations over time can be acquired, quantified and interpreted.

Transport phenom- ena considers methods suitable for interpreting data from intact systems. Cellular engineering develops and communicates quantitative biochemical and biophysical design principles that govern cell function.
