Biomedicine is the branch that deals with Medical sciences and Applies Biology and physiology. Biomedicine also relate to many categories in Health, Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Cell biology and Genetics. This branch relies more on theory, the history of the disease, the medicines recommended, their effectiveness and finally the result. Another important feature of this branch is that it works for both with humans and animals. This is the first common branch of medicine wherein the animals and humans will be given equal importance while finding the solution for different health diseases.

Tissue engineering (TE) has given many emerging therapies that made a great success such as bone grafts, Histopathology, Tissue Biomarkers, valid approach to the bone regeneration/substitution. In contrast to classic biomaterial approach, TE is based on the understanding of tissue formation. Histopathology is the microscopic examination of tissue to study the diseases present in it. Tissue biomarker refers to the study of molecular or cellular structure of cell or tissues that is used to identify the disease caused due to the alterations present in the cells. The other most useful or important invention is the Photodynamic therapy. This is the form of light, sensitive chemical substance with molecular oxygen that is used to kills the foreign substance from the cells like Fungi, Bacteria and viruses.

An Artificial organ is an engineered tissue that is implanted into human for interacting with living tissue to replace natural organ for the purpose of restoring a patient’s state of living back to as normal as possible. The main purpose of this process is for supporting patient’s life. The Microchip or 'organs-on-chips' provide organ function and disease, and for applications such as toxicity tests of drug candidates. An alternative approach is to foster the ability of cells to self-assemble, in the hope that they will recapitulate actual organ development and reveal insights into the process.

Tissue engineering is almost success process but still it has certain drawbacks. The main challenge is it is very difficult to construct Scaffolds. It takes much time to understand and research on particular Organ and Tissues. Technology should be advanced so that it becomes easy for researchers to spot diseases in the base Tissue. Many people oppose tissue engineering due to their belief that life begins at conception, and an artificial organ to save someone’s life defies natural order.

It is the study of reversing the process of aging or slowing down of aging up to maximum lifespan. Anti-Aging Medicine is a clinical specialty based on advanced biomedical technologies and scientific research application mainly focused on the early detection of causes, prevention of occurrence , treatment of aging-related disease ,reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders and diseases which is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those innovative science and research applied in other preventive health specialties to prolong the healthy lifespan of tissues in humans.
Bioimaging (biological imaging) refers to any imaging technique used in life sciences and spans the full spectrum from molecule to man. An important sub-field is medical imaging, which refers to techniques and methods needed to create images of the human body (or parts and function thereof) for clinical purposes or medical science. Another field closely related to bioimaging is structural biology, a branch of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics concerned with the spatial and temporal arrangement of biological macromolecules, (proteins and nucleic acids) and sub-cellular compartments.

Biomaterials play an integral role in medicine today—restoring function and facilitating healing for people after injury or disease. Biomaterials may be natural or synthetic and are used in medical applications to support, enhance, or replace damaged tissue or a biological function. Biocomposites are formed by using resin and natural fibres. It can be non-wood natural fibres (rice, wheat, coconut, etc.) or wood fibres (magazines, soft and hardwoods). Metals are mainly a choice of biomaterials in fields of dental, orthopaedic, cardiac implants. As metals can lead to wear, corrosion, so surface coating and modification of metals are necessary for medical applications.

Bionanomaterials are molecular materials composed partially or completely of biological molecules (such as antibodies, proteins/enzymes, DNA, RNA, lipids, oligosaccharides, viruses, and cells for example) and resulting in molecular structures having a nanoscale-dimension(s). The resulting bionanomaterials may have potential applications as novel fibers, sensors, adhesives, energy generating and/or harnessing materials, to mention just a few aspects. These types of systems can allow for fabrication of complex devices by self-assembly under mild experimental conditions and in an eco-friendly manner such as at room temperature and in aqueous conditions. Nano biomaterials are used for cancer treatment, regeneration, and polymeric ones act as gene delivery systems. Nanofiber scaffolds are those fibres which are having diameters less than 100 nm. Nano scaffolding is a process to regrow tissue and bone, also used in stem cell expansion.
