MSE 4610 - Biomedical Materials and Their Applications

Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MSE 3010  or CHEM 3570  or equivalent or permission of instructor.

L. Estroff.

Many types of materials are used in biomedical engineering to replace or supplement natural biological systems. Interaction with blood and tissues is always of primary importance, but depending on the use of the biomedical material, mechanical, optical, and transport properties may also be vital. The first half of the class will focus on establishing a common vocabulary and knowledge base in materials, biochemistry, cell biology, and immunology. The second half of the class will focus on a survey of commercially available biomaterials as well as future prospects.
