Fundamental sciences behind the design and selection of biomaterials, including crystallography, polymer science, characterization, mechanical testing, and surface preparation. Integration of biomaterials into the body and its response, including inflammation and rejection. Semester-long research project.



The field of biomaterials covers a wide range of materials across many applications. Any material

intended to replace, supplement, or enhance any aspect of a biological body can be called a biomaterial.

As a result, a thorough understanding of the field requires many scientific and engineering disciplines,

from biology to chemistry to materials science to mechanical engineering. As a gateway elective, BME 335 covers the fundamental sciences behind the design and selection of biomaterials and supports the interest areas regenerative medicine and rehabilitation engineering.

The goal of this course is to teach the fundamental sciences behind the design and selection of biomaterials, including crystallography, polymer science, characterization, mechanical testing, surface preparation and biocompatibility .


Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Apply materials science to explain the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of biomaterials.

  2. Integrate basic science and engineering knowledge to choose a biomaterial with the correct characteristics for a given biomedical application.

  3. Select proper characterization techniques to study biomaterials properties.

  4. Choose analysis and testing methods to study short- and long-term functionality of biomaterials.

  5. Predict the expected interaction of biomaterials and the body, including immune response, compatibility, and long-term viability.

  6. Analyze recent peer-reviewed literature on a wide range of biomaterials for facts about their development, characterization, application, and failure.

  7. Propose a novel application for an innovative biomaterials.
