Abstract

In this Chapter, recent results about studies of interactions between piezoelectric nanoparticles and living systems will be discussed. As extremely innovative materials, great importance is devoted to the investigations of their stabilisation in physiological environments and to their biocompatibility. Applications as drug carriers and nanovectors will be thereafter described, and special attention will be dedicated to tissue engineering applications. Finally, preliminary results achieved by our group on “wireless” cell stimulation will be approached.
