Description

Biomedical Polymers is a course that provides the most recent development of biomedical polymers and their applications and covers a variety of biomedical areas such as in cardiovascular, dental, orthopedic, ophthalmologic and wound healing research. We will investigate polymer biocompatibility, absorption in the body, advantages relative to conventional materials, and any issues they may possess.

The course will also review synthetic, natural, and biodegradable polymers, along with their morphology, crystallinity, mechanical properties, and suitability for use as a medical device. Conversion processes- from polymer to medical device- will also be presented.

Course Outcome

After completing Biomedical Polymers, students will be equipped with a basic understanding of the following:

  • Currently available and investigated polymers
  • Material properties
  • Polymer conversion into medical devices
  • Selection and design the unique polymers for special biomedical applications
  • Benefits and limitations of these polymers in vivo and in vitro
  • Agenda

  • Audience
