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

This course is the continuation course to Tissue Engineering I and covers the following topics:
Clinical Implementation of tissue engineering: Host integration
Cell and tissue properties
Characterization of growing tissues and cells,
Gene therapy and drug delivery
Stem cells
Tailoring of biomaterials for scaffold optimizationj
Producing TE products
Ethical issues
Regulatory issues

Organisation

The course will consist of lectures, seminars, article review sessions and laboratory work. Laboratory work will be carried out within the group projects, where students will grow tissue on the scaffolds prepared in the laboratory. The students will interact with scientists developing various tissues such as cartilage, neural tissues and blood vessels. During the course, students will investigate the properties of tissue grown in laboratory by relevante microscopic, mechanical, immunohistochemical and bioanalytical methods.
