Basis for technology – glass, metals, and plastics in medicine
Modern materials are what keeps medical technology together at the core; the industry would not get far without glass, metals and alloys as well as medical plastics and medical adhesives. Today, new materials often take an example in nature, researchers design them with a specific purpose in mind or let algorithms search for promising molecules. The surfaces of materials can also be processed further to give them desired functions. Learn more from the laboratories of material researchers in our Sphere MATERIALS.
