ORTHO 270: Orthopaedic Tissue Engineering

Biological principles underlying the use of engineering strategies and biocompatible materials for tissue repair and regeneration. Structure, physiology, and mechanics of articular cartilage, bone, and dense soft connective tissues. Current ideas, approaches, and applications being implemented as therapeutic regimens for arthritis, spinal deformities, and limb salvage. Multidisciplinary constraints on the design and creation of tissue constructs. Students enrolling for 2 units prepare a presentation and final project. Prerequisite: familiarity with basic cell and molecular mechanisms underlying tissue differentiation.
