Biological systems being complex entities bring to life elegant and efficient strategies to make materials that often outperform man-made materials of similar composition. One of the main goals of the interdisciplinary field of bioinspired materials is to unlock the secrets of these systems - the composition, processing, self-assembly, hierarchical organization and properties of biological materials - and use this information to synthesize and engineer novel functional materials for a variety of practical applications. Bioinspired concepts are becoming increasingly integrated into materials and devices intended for food safety, cosmetic formulation and drug delivery systems.
