About this course

Biomedical and biological materials science is a new and emerging field at the interface of materials science and biology. The emergence of the discipline is due in part to the advent of regenerative medicine, which requires biomaterials that interact with the body in a specific and predictable manner. In today’s world, materials designed for usage with biological systems as well as materials derived from biological systems for medical and other applications are rising in importance. To fully participate in the exciting new sphere, a strong foundation in both materials science and medical biology is essential.
