Certificates » Biosensors & Biomaterials
Program Features
  • Online format
  • Real-time interaction with students and instructors
  • Introduction to the human body's basic chemical and cellular systems
  • Fundamental molecular processes that occur in living organisms, normally and when interacting with foreign materials
  • Medical chemistry and chemical kinetics
  • Overview of applications, biocompatibility, biomaterials types and properties
  • Biomolecular materials, protein absorption and cells on biomaterials
  • Diagnostics, smart materials, drug release and tissue engineering
  • Biomechanics of medical devices, biocompatibility and biosurfaces
Who Should Apply
  • Individuals who have an interest in the application of engineering to medicine or biotechnology
  • Individuals already working in medicine, biotechnology or related fields who wish to expand their knowledge base
Explore the chemical and molecular interactions underlying the prevalent use of biomaterials in medical devices and biotechnology. Study biosensors, in use and under development, for measuring and tracking the complex biological components that provide a foundation of modern health care. Learn how to design materials that can mimic biological tissues, be implanted for long periods of time or be engineered to deliver drugs to specific areas of the body.
Key Outcome
You will know how sensors can be designed and how to apply them in medicine and biology.
