Description

This free online course introduces you to the basics of Immunology and organs of the immune system. The course then goes on to explain the process of designing immunomodulatory biomaterials to elicit desirable responses from the host system to the biomaterials. This course is arranged systematically and presented clearly so you will easily be able to understand the given concepts.

Next, the course will cover the factors of bioethics and the ethical dilemmas in embryonic stem cells, animal testing and informal consent. The course then goes on to explain the various design strategies that are used to synthesize Tissue-Engineered Skin Grafts. The course emphasizes various proposed treatment models for problems requiring Tissue Engineering approaches. 

Finally, you will learn about the classic bone tissue engineering paradigm and the key components present in Bone Tissue Engineering applications. The reasons and the methods for repairing Corneal damage using Tissue Engineering applications are also discussed. Bioethics and Trends in Tissue Engineering is an informative course that will interest students of Biomedical Engineering, Researchers in Tissue Engineering or those who have an interest in these topics.
