Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Basic engineering courses.

Syfte

The aim of this course is to present engineering concepts, technologies and underlying physical principles used to address biological and medical challenges of relevance in both fundamental and industrial contexts. Examples include biomimetic concepts (shark skin, lotus effect, synthetic life), biomaterials (medical implants, tissue engineering), biosensor (SPR and QCM-D) and advanced (bio)analytical tool (microscopy) development and applications. A part of the course aims at giving the students hands-on experience in performing biochemical laboratory work and using bioanalytical tools.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)


  • understand main physical concepts behind properties of biological systems, (bio)interactions and methods for (bio)material modification or characterization

  • know the general concept of biocompatibility and how it can be achieved in different situations

  • evaluate and choose which engineering tools and methods can be used to control biological systems and their response

  • choose proper techniques for analysis, modification or control of biological systems and interactions

  • know the meaning and actively use relevant biological and physical terms, i.e. communicate in the interdisciplinary environment 

  • follow current literature in biotechnical fields 

  • write scientific reports, present orally and discuss scientific material

  • know about bio-oriented research taking place at the Dept of Applied Physics and Chalmers

  • choose and continue studies in more advanced and specialized courses in the fields of biomaterials, biophysics or biotechnology.

Innehåll

Biological objects and their properties:



  • Basic definitions and properties of biological structures (tissues, cells, lipids, proteins, DNA, etc)


Biointerfaces - when artificial surfaces interact with life:



  • Surface properties affecting biological responses

  • (Bio)Surface analysis and characterization methods

  • Surface engineering - preparation & modification methods


Biotechnical physics in applications:



  • Artificial materials inside the body - material science and clinical aspects of biomaterials

  • Biomimetics - what can engineers learn from nature?

  • Biosensors, bioarrays and biochips - basic principles and future trends

  • Bionics, bioelectronics and signal transduction in biostructures

  • Commercialization of biotechnical innovations - IPR and project management

Organisation

Lectures, labs and project.

Litteratur

Book: Methods in Molecular Biophysics, Serdyuk, Zaccai and Zaccai.
Handouts of lecture notes and scientific articles.

Examination

Exam, labs and project report based on literature study during the course. Oral presentation of the report during mini-seminar at the end of the course.


Grades are determined by the total number of points accumulated according to: <40% - fail, 40-60% - 3, 60-80% - 4, and >80% - 5.
