Prof. Carsten Werner

Short Course on Polymeric Biomaterials

May 20-22, 2015
WIM, Room 215

Lecture 1, May 20, 14:15-16:00
Introduction/overview: Biomaterials science in a nutshell, current trends and challenges of the field.

Lecture 2, May 21, 9:15-11:00
Blood contacting biomaterials: defense mechanisms of blood components activated upon contact with foeign materials; principles of experimental in vitro hemocompatibility assessment; modification of biomaterials to improve hemocompatibility: passivation of surfaces, immobilization of inhibitors of coagulation, thrombocytes and immune reactions.

Lecture 3, May 22, 9:15-11:00
Polymers for regenerative medicine: biopolymer materials derived from the extracellular matrix for tissue engineering strategies; structures and functions, e.g. control of cell adhesion, presentation of growth factors; biopolymer materials derived from the extracellular matrix; chemically modified biopolymer matrices, peptide-containing synthetic polymers; biohybrid polymer networks, loading/release of growth factors, modular platform systems to adjust mechanical and biofunctional characteristics.
