This course is designed for students in a master program (Polymer Science, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacy) and consists of a lecture (2 SWS, Wednesday 9-11 AM) and a seminar (2 SWS, Wednesday 11 AM - 1 PM). The lecture will introduce basic concepts of Biomaterials, Biocompatibilty Testing, Medical Device Development, Tissue Engineering and Angiogenesis in vitro. Associated regulatory and ethical aspects are also covered.
- Principles of biomaterials
- Evaluation of biomaterials for safe use in humans
- Specific applications of biomaterials
- Principles of tissue engineering
- Application of tissue engineered products
- Special aspects of vascular tissue engineering
Exam: The exam will consist of a talk/ppt presentation about a recent publication (10-15 min) related to at least one of the topics studied during the course followed by 10-15 min questions - half on the topic of the publication, half on the lecture in general.
Moreover, the students will be asked to discuss papers once during the seminar as training for the exam.
