Biomaterials are synthetic or natural materials used either to increase or permanently replace a tissue or for applications requiring a relatively short time. A wide range of materials are employed in the construction of biomedical devices such as artificial blood vessels, heart valves, cosmetic implants, orthopedic joints, dental fillings, intravenous catheters and vehicles for the controlled delivery of drugs. This course shows the basic biological systems that govern the use of biomaterials and the
range of materials currently used in biomedical applications.
