20.363 Biomaterials Science and Engineering
Covers, at a molecular scale, the analysis and design of materials used in contact with biological systems, and biomimetic strategies aimed at creating new materials based on principles found in biology. Topics include molecular interaction between bio- and synthetic molecules and surfaces; design, synthesis, and processing approaches for materials that control cell functions; and application of materials science to problems in tissue engineering, drug delivery, vaccines, and cell-guiding surfaces. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.
Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 56-614.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
