Modern bone implants and their scaffolds are evolving to become ever more complex engineering objects that possess the features of hierarchically structured composites and hybrid materials. Collagen, hydroxyapatite (HAp) and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) are biocompatible materials with well-proven track record of use in bone tissue engineering. They can be purposefully combined and structured in order to fabricate engineered biomaterials. We present some recent achievements in the fabrication of cellular scaffolds from Collagen-HAp and Collagen-UHMWPE by freeze casting and drying. The samples were characterized using Raman spectroscopy, FTIR, SEM, contact angle measurements, and biocompatibility tests.
