We have discussed two different types of biomimetic materials for medical applications: structurally inspired and functionally inspired biomaterials. As time passes, these two categories tend to be merging with each other, providing more sophisticated systems to meet the needs of modern medicine. The examples introduced in this chapter do not cover all biomimetic systems that have been developed, instead focusing on a few selected examples to provide readers with some insight into further innovative development of biomaterials.
