HST.535 Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine


Class Info

Engineering and clinical leaders present the principles and practice of tissue engineering (TE) and regenerative medicine (RM). Topics include factors that prevent the spontaneous regeneration of tissues/organs in the adult (following traumatic injury, surgical excision, disease, and aging), and molecular and cell-biological mechanisms that can be harnessed for induced regeneration. Presents the principles underlying strategies for employing select biomaterial scaffolds, exogenous cells, soluble regulators, and physical stimuli, for the formation of tissue in vitro (TE) and regeneration of tissues/organs in vivo (RM). Describes the methodologies for producing biomaterial scaffolds and for incorporating cells and regulatory molecules into workable devices. Examples of clinical successes and failures of regenerative devices are analyzed as case studies.

This class has 7.01x, 3.091, 5.111, and 8.01 as prerequisites.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 1-371.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
