Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering

This area focuses on the development of any material, natural or man-made, that comprises whole or part of a living structure or biomedical device which performs, augments, or replaces a natural function. Tissue engineering attempts to solve problems at the microscopic level at precise target locations and design miniature devices to deliver compounds that can stimulate or inhibit cellular processes. This study track is currently available to students in both master's and doctoral study.
