Professor  Paul Gatenholm



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

Although life of thousands of people is saved by reconstructive surgeons many people are still waiting organ donation. Reconstructive surgery became in last decade new discipline -tissue engineering with the focus on the fabrication of living replacement part for the body in the laboratory. Tissue engineering includes biology, chemistry, material science, engineering, immunology and transplantation. Tissue Engineering course provides a general understanding of tissue growth and development, the tools and theoretical information needed to design tissues and organs.

Content

The following topics will be covered:

Introduction
Cell biology, the basis of growth and differentiation
Growth factors
In vitro control of tissue development
Polymer Scaffolds
Cell-polymer interactions
Bioreactors

Organisation

The course will consist of 24 lectures and seminars and 40 hours of laboratory work. Laboratory work will be carried out in the project form where students will prepare the various scaffolds, characterize them, work with selected cells and study cell scaffold interactions in the bioreactor.
