This free online course will introduce you to the idea of tissue engineering and how our understanding of biology and our bodies has grown to a point where we can edit genes and tissue to allow for optimal targeted drug delivery. You will study the whole replacement and regeneration of tissue as well as route-specific deliveries.

Next, you will tackle surface modifications and polymeric growth factor, which stems from advancements in understanding polymers and hydrogels and their role in drug administration and delivery. You will study certain areas of the immune system and learn about vaccines, their different types, and how they are engineered. You will then advance further to learn about DNA and genetics, and how DNA vaccination and delivery work.

You will finish the course by studying responsive delivery systems and briefly cover nanotoxicology and translation pathways. This material is heavily based on the biological and chemical engineering fields, with an in-depth look at topics and ideas surrounding this content. It is a rewarding course that will expand the knowledge of anyone studying or working in these particular areas of expertise or anyone who is wanting to dive into this fascinating subject matter.
