Short Course of Tissue Engineering: focused on nanomaterials, technology of their fabrication and the use of nanomaterials in biomedicine. This one day course is divided into two parts – theoretical and practical.
Combined experimental and modelling approach to clinical applications: focused on the main mechanical testing techniques used for biological biomimetic tissues (biological investigation including stress/strain behavior, medical usage of micro-tomography, multiscale and homogenization techniques in tissue modelling, clinical application – Computer assist diagnosis and software modelling).
Evaluation of implant´s stability: the aim of the course is to describe the role of stability of implants for their success rate. The course includes a theoretical and a practical part.
Jacob Klein, Weizmann Institute of Science, “Molecular mechanisms of biological lubrication “
Jeffrey A. Weiss, University of Utah, “FEBio: Finite Elements for Biomechanics”.
Prof Richard M Hall, University of Leeds, Title to be announced.
