The purpose of this course is to introduce students to tissue engineering. Tissue engineering is defined as the development and manipulation of laboratory-grown molecules, cells, tissues, or organs to replace and/or support the function of injured body parts. Tissue engineering is highly interdisciplinary and therefore crosses numerous engineering and medical specialties. Upon completing this course, the graduate and undergraduate students should: understand the basic principles behind human cell and tissue biology and cell. Be familiar with the general types of biomaterials used in tissue engineering. Understand techniques utilized to design, fabricate, and functionally assess tissue engineering systems. Apply the combined knowledge of tissue organization and tissue engineering strategies to design a unique, reasonable tissue engineering solution. This five part course covers cell and tissue biology, biomaterials, drug delivery, engineering methods and design, and clinical implementation.
