Development of functional biomaterials by a design-driven approach is described, whereby individual properties are first decoupled to investigate their sole effects on a biological process. Following this investigation, they are recombined in such a way that the overall performance and applicability of the biomaterial is improved. This is in contrast to classical, processing-driven biomaterials development where the properties of a material are mainly determined by the possibilities of the technique used to produce it.
