Application of the foam models to trabecular bone
Modeling of bone loss in osteoporosis
Application of foam models to tissue engineering scaffolds
Case study on the design of an osteochondral scaffold
The contractile behavior of biological cells on scaffolds
In this engineering course, we will explore cellular solids in medicine, including trabecular bone mechanics, the increased risk of bone fracture due to trabecular bone loss in patients with osteoporosis, the development of metal foam coatings for orthopedic implants, applying foam models to tissue engineering scaffolds and the design of a porous scaffold for tissue engineering that mimics the body’s own extracellular matrix.
This course should be taken with 3.054.1x: Cellular Solids Part 1.
