BME 3210 - Multiscale Biomaterial Analysis


     
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: BME 2210  or equivalent.

D. A. Putnam.

The course in advanced biomaterials leads the class through the process of material design and characterization for their development as products in the medical device or pharmaceutical fields. Student teams will apply their fundamental knowledge of chemistry and biology to open-ended design challenges focused on biomaterial mechanics, processability, biocompatibility and federal regulatory requirements. Hands-on technical work in materials characterization will be combined with key knowledge of biomaterials to give the class an integrated understanding of biomaterials design and development. Specific topics to be covered are classes of biomaterials, methods of characterization, the interface of biomaterials and biology, the foreign body response, inflammation, wound healing, biofilms, sterilization methods, FDA-approval guidelines and EU-approval guidelines.
