systems This course is about interactions of materials with biological systems at different scale levels from biomolecules to entire organs and implications of these interactions on both material and biological function Structure of the course Part 1 Fundamentals classes of biomaterials overview of biomolecules themodynamics of surfacebiomolecule interactions Part 2 Concepts Molecular basis of cell and tissuebiomaterial interactions Part 3 Implications how to fine tune material properties to achieve desirable performance Part 4 Applications Examples of biomaterials designed for specific biomedical applications Course Overview Grading approximate Homework 15 Lab 25 Quizzes 10 Midterm exam 20 Final exam 30 You will need to understand basic concepts and be able to apply them Do not
