Course description and aims

This course focuses on an important matter about biomaterials and basic knowledge of bioceramics, biopolymers and cells used in medical devices, regenerative medicine and drug delivery system. Biomaterial is an interdisciplinary field, and students need to understand each subject based on a common platform. The selection of materials starts development of medical devices, regenerative medicine and drug delivery systems, and thus students require to understand the properties of materials and cells composed of our tissues and organs.

Student learning outcomes

The goal of this course is to understand fundamental concepts of medical devices, regenerative medicine and drug delivery systems, through the position of material engineering, based on reactivity and safety of biomaterials used in our body, and to explain interfacial interaction between biomaterials and cells.

Keywords

Biomaterial, Regenerataive Medicine, Drug Delivery System, Bioceramcs, Biopolymers

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This lecture is given by distribution of necessary handout and blackboard demonstration.. Students are given exercise problems related to the lecture given that day to solve. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
