Description

This free online course introduces you to the principles and applications of Tissue Engineering. Firstly, the course provides the basics of Tissue Engineering and the importance of scaffold materials in Tissue Engineering with a focus on surface, mechanical and biological properties. This is arranged systematically and presented clearly so you will easily be able to understand the given concepts. The course emphasizes extracellular matrix, natural and synthetic polymers.

Next, various scaffold fabrication techniques such as electrospinning and solvent casting/particulate leaching will be explained. Material characterization, cell source, isolation, growth and differentiation are discussed. The course then goes on to explain the early events that occur in tissue development, migration of cells to form the different germ layers and the challenges in Tissue Engineering. These topics come under cell adhesion, migration, signaling and bioreactors. 

Finally, the course emphasizes the ethical and regulatory aspects of Tissue Engineering in clinical application. Bone Tissue Engineering, Vascular Tissue Engineering, and Corneal Tissue Engineering are also discussed in detail. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to understand the growth and development of tissue as well as the tools and theoretical information necessary to design tissues and organs. This Advanced Diploma in Tissue Engineering is an informative course which will interest students of Biomedical Engineering, Researchers in Tissue Engineering or those who have an interest in these topics. Why wait? Sign up for this course and start learning today!
