purpose of this course is to provide students having a background in
biomaterials and biomanufacturing with an opportunity to learn about the
many modern aspect of biomaterials from basic science to clinical
applications, across the formulations and chemistry of polymers,
ceramics, metals and their use in various biomedical devices and
implants, as well as their clinical performance and host responses.
Students will also gain knowledge and experiences with designing and
manufacturing biomedical devices through team projects. This
one-semester, graduate course is intended for students majoring in the
industrial engineering, or those who contemplating such a major (or
minor). Students enrolled in the class should have an understanding of
various biomaterials, and the ability to understand biological phenomena
and manufacturing processes.
