Biomaterials play important roles in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, nanotechnology, and development of medical devices interacting with the biological system. This course will provide a detailed analysis of the mechanical, chemical, and bio-physiological properties and behavior of the different types of biomaterials. Upon successful completion, students should be able to select and justify appropriate materials for the design and engineering of biomedical implants.
Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes: CHEM 003A. (Formerly ENGG 197E, Special Topics: Fundamentals of Biomaterials.)
