Metals in biomedical devices are exploited due to their inertness and structural functions. Several opportunities exist for implantable metallic biomaterials to enhance the bio functionality of current metallic biomaterials and tailor their interface with the surrounding tissue]. Furthermore, there has been a lot of interest in the development of new metals and alloys for potential applications such as biodegradable metals]. This Special Issue on Metallic Biomaterials aims to bring together recent advances (both literature reviews and original research articles) in the field of metallic biomaterials.
