In this interdisciplinary course, students will gain knowledge and skills in the area of advanced material science with a special focus on materials for medical applications. The main aim of the course is to develop knowledge in biomaterials including biomaterials design, characterization, fabrication and application in different fields of medicine. The students will learn about metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites used in medicine, and the role of materials science in their design and optimization. The course will also provide an insight into modern methods of shaping material properties, design, and manufacturing, in the aspect of their interaction with the living cells, and replacement or regeneration of tissues and organs. Other topics include the impact of the living organism on the biomaterial and implant behaviour, degradation of various biomaterials, basic of cells and tissue biology, biocompatibility, biophysical, biochemical and biomechanical requirements for biomaterials and medical devices.
Examples of modules:
• Materials Design • Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology • Phase Transformations • Thermodynamics of Alloys • Biomaterials • Bioengineering • Methods of Biomaterials Characterization • Tissue engineering • Defects of Crystalline Structure • Microbiological Corrosion
