In this presentation the latest advances in the field of biomaterials for tendon repair will be presented. Current technologies put forward for engineering tendon tissue will be discussed. The focus of the presentation will be on the latest developments in electrospun based scaffolds exhibiting suitable time dependant mechanical properties, nanoscale (fibrous) topography and the ability to deliver locally growth factors. Emerging developments based on tailored combinations of synthetic and natural polymers incorporating nanovectors for local growth factor delivery, related to the EU project P4FiT, will be reported and discussed.
