Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • account for medical treatment and drug distribution that requires stable or biodegradable materials

  • account for how the properties of the materials influence important cellular processes, inflammation, scar formation or regeneration.

  • account for function and use of stem cells in regenerative purpose

  • analyse implantation outcome

  • evaluate effect of design and material properties on mechanotransduction


Methods that use materials for substitute or repair of human bodies. Common treatments and methods for tissue regeneration. Basic theory, invited specialists and project work with industry/research


Lectures and laboratory work, project work, guest lectures.


Examination takes place through written examination (2 HE credits), and through written and oral presentations and participation in laboratory sessions and seminars (3 HE credits )For passed final grades are required that all subparts have been assessed passed. The final grades correspond to a weighted average of the results of the written examination and other parts.
