Materials, synthetic or living, that can be used for medical purposes to replace a part or function of an organ must be tolerated by the recipient, not be toxic and have mechanical properties compatible with the implantation site. These criteria require a preliminary evaluation that is often based on microscopic approaches. This symposium will present new techniques and methods of microscopic investigation implemented from the design of the material, the study of its structure, the interactions with biological systems and its degradation.

Keywords: materials, biomaterials, biocompatibility, degradation, materials design.
