Abstract [en]

Functionalities of biomaterials and drug delivery systems are improved by tailoring their surface properties using modern nanotechnology. Orthopedic implants and invasive electrodes are examples of implantable biomaterials. Biological interactions of orthopedic implants can be optimized by the synergetic effect of surface micro- and nanotexturing with a chemical composition of coating. Further, mechanical flexibility and electrochemical characteristics of invasive electrodes are improved by using micro- and nanotechnology. In nano-size drug delivery systems, surface properties of nanocarriers strongly affect their safety and efficacy. Mesoporous silicon nanoparticles are example of nanocarriers those properties can be tailored for drug delivery applications.
