Nanofiber technology is an exciting research area that has attracted the attention of several researchers as a potential solution to the current challenges in the biomedical field for wound dressing, organ repair, and treatment for osteoporosis. Nanofibrous meshes mimic the porous structure of the natural extracellular matrix (ECM); hence they are advantageous for tissue regeneration and can be used for sustaining the release of encapsulated drug or growth factor. Electrospinning is one of the most common methods for the fabrication of nanofibrous meshes, with very high surface area to volume ratio and porous structure, for various biomedical and tissue engineering applications. The electrospun meshes can be used for making scaffolds similar in physical structure to that of ECM. The electrospun nanofibers mimic the ECM nano-fibrils and porous structure. In this review, the applications of nanofibers in various biomedical areas such as tissue engineering, drug delivery and wound dressing are summarized. This provides an overview of the development of new materials and techniques to be used in biomedical engineering applications and reliable analytical techniques for their characterization.
