Introduction to Bioengineering and Medical Devices
An introduction to the fundamental concepts required for the design and function of implantable medical devices, including basic applications of materials, chemistry and biology to bone/implant systems. The class will discuss the interfaces between cells and the surfaces of synthetic biomaterials, and biosensors for disease detection. An introduction to bio-nanotechnology will also be presented. Classroom sessions will be complemented by lab demonstrations and seminars by outside lecturers.
