Abstract:This article deals with some of the most recent developments in the use of hyperbranched polymers in biomedical applications. Some examples have been selected to show their potential in drug delivery, tissue engineering, imaging technologies and molecular imprinting. Moreover, the preparation of methacrylic networks using chemically-modified hyperbranched polymers as multifunctional macromonomers by photopolymerization is described. The capability to support valve interstitial cell culture was demonstrated and the adhesion and functionality of the cells was related to the mechanical properties of these materials
