BME I6000 Advanced Biomaterials

This course is concerned with the design and fabrication of advanced biomaterials for clinical applications. The major classes of materials and characterization methods are presented to provide a foundation for more specialized topics focusing on novel materials with tailored structural and biological properties to facilitate interactions with living tissue. Topics to be discussed include surface modification to engineer cell-instructive materials, self-assembled and nanostructured materials, hybrid composite materials, environmentally responsive "smart" biomaterials, and decellularized natural matrices.
