Bioinspired materials and structures have widespread applications, including the aerospace, and medical fields. One synthetic processing method to form bioinspired materials is freeze casting, which can be used to form ceramic scaffolds that have structures resembling bone. These scaffolds can be subsequently infiltrated with polymers to form robust composites. This presentation will review potential applications of these composites in the biomedical field. This work is supported by a Multi-University Research Initiative through the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR-FA9550-15-1-0009).
