Module content
Seminar classes:

The course aims to introduce to the students different methods for a defined design of biomaterials surface properties with special attention paid to
● the biological background,
● the methods to generate the surface property profile,
● the biologically wanted surface property as well as
● relevant results from cell biological experiments, animal testing, and clinical trials.
This includes (i) methods to create defined surface morphologies via physical and chemical processing, (ii) physical and chemical modifications of surface properties, (iii) inorganic coating systems, and (iv) the whole area of BioSurface Engineering, i.e. the biomimetic imitation of the native cellular microenvironment given by the properties of the native extracellular matrix (ECM).
This will enable students to design biomaterials surfaces from various substrates for biomedical applications in different areas such as tissue engineering and regenerative medicine for use in contact with different tissues.
Topics:
1. Biofunctionality, cell communication and surfaces
2. Surface morphology and cellular response
3. Physico-chemical surface properties and cellular response
4. Mechanical and physical factors influencing cellular response
5. Introduction to BioSurface Engineering
6. Strategies for immobilization I
7. Strategies for immobilization II
8. Peptides
9. Components of the extracellular matrix
10. Growth factors and cytokines
