Topics include: introduction of biomaterials, introduction of nanobiomaterials, synthetic nanobiomaterials, biological nanobiomaterials (DNA nanomaterials, protein and peptide nanomaterials, etc), biofunctionalization of nanobiomaterials, use of nanobiomaterials in tissue engineering, drug delivery, gene delivery, cancer therapy, and bioimaging. Key advances from the recent literature will be reviewed to supplement specific lecture topics. Lab projects may be offered to students to obtain hands-on experience on nanobiomaterials processing and characterization.

      • BE 5331-006 Polymers in Biomedical Engineering
        Polymeric biomaterials for biomedical use, especially in tissue engineering/regenerative medicine, have gained increasing interest during the past decade. Such materials include synthetic polymers, natural polymers, micro-/nano-composite polymers, and biologically oriented synthetic polymers. The course will provide students with a solid foundation in polymeric biomaterial design, synthesis, characterization, processing, and their biomedical applications. The topics include theory of polymer chemistry and physics, polymeric biomaterials design, surface-engineering of polymeric biomaterials, functionalization of polymeric biomaterials, characterization of polymeric biomaterials, micro- and nano-fabrication of polymeric biomaterials, cell/tissue-polymeric biomaterial interactions, and the biomedical applications of polymeric biomaterials in cardiovascular, neural, musculoskeletal engineering, orthopaedic device, drug delivery, and gene therapy. This course is open to students from all departments in college of engineering and college of science.
