This module covers the different classes of biomaterials
and their applications. Structure-property relationships of
biomedical materials and their interaction with biological
systems are addressed. The module also covers the
performance of biomaterials including bulk and surface
properties of materials, materials’ response to the
physiological environment and hosts’ response to the
biomaterials such as inflammation, hypersensitivity and blood-material compatibility. The challenges and trends
of biomaterials research and development, as well as
the biotechnology of materials are discussed in various
applications such as orthopaedic, dental, ophthalmic, drug
delivery, cardiovascular, and tissue engineering.
