Biomaterials (Tissue Interactions): Course Description

As an introductory course in cell biology, the 'Biomaterials (Tissue Interactions)' OpenCourseWare provides graduate students with a basic understanding of tissue engineering, medical implants and artificial organs. Students will learn about cell tissue interactions with various biomaterials and investigate the processes on a molecular level. MIT professors Myron Spector and Ioannis Yannas teach this free online course. The professors will discuss tissue structures, organ replacement by induced regeneration, principles and practice of tissue engineering, protein absorption on biomaterials, cell-matrix interactions and other topics. Graduate students taking the OpenCourseWare should have previous knowledge or coursework in biology and solid state chemistry at an introductory level. The 'Biomaterials (Tissue Interactions)' class at MIT is part of the Biological Engineering field of study and is held twice a week in a lecture session format.

This OpenCourseWare includes lecture notes, homework assignments and readings to support your study. If you are interested in taking this free online course, visit the biomaterials course page.
