Modern implants and biomedical materials are rarely used in Pakistan, mostly imported on initiatives taken by progressive surgeons, affording patients and hospitals, suppliers and/or social helpers. However, the costs borne are very high and there is a dire need to develop these materials locally and also explore the local potential for material based novelty. Therefore it is of utmost importance to coordinate all efforts on the biomedical material front in Pakistan. Coordination of all efforts shall rely on identification and networking between national and international experts and industry. This requires the transition of lab based concepts to patient-friendly solutions – which Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Biomedical Materials (IRCBM) at CUI Lahore campus is developing. Research groups working at IRCBM include Bone repair & Regeneration, Dental Materials & Clinical Applications, Soft Tissue, and Sensor and Biosensor.
