Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

This course is a continuation course after Tissue Engineering I, and allows the student to explore the various clinical application areas of tissue engineering in more detail. Application areas will covered in case studies presented by researchers and clinicians working in the field. Various aspects of developing tissues will be covered for each tissue type, such as cell sourcing, growth factors required, scaffold materials and designs being used, growth conditions in bioreactors, phsyical and biofunctional characterization required of the forming tissue, methods to evaluate the growing tissue, etc. Students will have the opportunity to study a particular tissue type in more detail through the project work which will be carried out during the reading period.

Content

The course will cover the following topics:
Transplantation of Engineered cells and tissues
Immunomodulation and immunoisolation
Gene therapy
Case studies: Cardiovascular system, Musculoskeletal system, Nervous system, skin
Stem cells
Regulatory issues

Organisation

he course will consist of 16 lectures and seminars and 60 hours of laboratory work. Laboratory work will be carried out in the project form where students will grow tissue on the scaffolds prepared in the laboratory. The students will interact with scientist developing various tissues such as cartilage, bone and blood vessels. During course student will investigate the properties of tissue grown in laboratory.
