Introduction: We understand the need of multi-disciplinary research team to generate innovative solution to the critical clinical issues related to biocompatibility and durability of implants and formulating better clinical treatment/management.

This institute’s main focus is on the research and teaching related to development and characterization of the biomaterials for the clinical applications. The team consists of clinicians, material scientists and mechanical engineers from College Of Dentistry-Restorative Dentistry and College of Engineering-Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), Department of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan Technological University (MEEM-MTU), and Department of Orthopedics at Rush University Medical Center (RUMC).

Mission statement: Our mission is to contribute to the advance of scientific knowledge in biomaterials (development, surface modifications and characterization) for the versatile clinical application for generating and maintaining implants with required durability and multifunctional performance.

Vision statement: IBTN aims to be a leading research institute in the area of biomaterial and bioengineering for multifunctional, durable and safer implants in the health care sector, particularly in dentistry and orthopedics.
