To develop the engineering principles behind the microstructure-property-processing relationship in implantable materials.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
- Better understand interactions between implantable biomaterials and tissues 
- Know how to select and use basic in vitro/in vivo compatibility tests to evaluate tissue response [1,2,6]
- Know how to characterize the interfaces between the implant and biosystems. [1,6]
- Overview of implantable materials & their biological responses
- Analysis of interactions between implantable materials and tissue
- Applying in vitro and in vivo compatibility tests
- Applying fundamental engineering tools to characterize interactions between implants and tissue
