ENGN 1931K - Cell-Material Interactions in Tissue Engineering
Students will study how materials are used in cell-based biological applications with a focus on engineered tissues and translational applications. Hybrid materials can be designed to elicit specific cellular interactions, including cell adhesion, mechanosensing, biochemical signaling, and electrical conduction. The primary scientific literature provides examples of these design principles as applied to natural and synthetic materials in cell-based assays, engineered tissues, and in vivo implantation. Students will participate in class discussions of the scientific literature, lead discussion through oral presentation and group engagement, and write literature summaries including a final project (either a primary research manuscript or literature review). Pre Requisites: Recommended: Physiology/Cell & Molecular Biology, Biomaterials/Materials Science.
