IBA was founded in 1992 as a non-university research institute sponsored by the Free State of Thuringia. The institute's staff, an interdisciplinary team of scientists, graduate engineers and technicians, possess many years of experience in applied research and in product development. The institute has a wide range of relations to research and industry in other EU countries.

The involved Biomaterials department focuses on the analysis of and the specific influence on the behavior of biomaterials within the biological environment. The central issue thereby is the application-based determination of the biofunctionality and biocompatibility of biomaterials.
