Courses in CoE Macromolecular Science and Engineering
Macromolecular Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary program that provides the academic and research basis for studies in the science and technology of synthetic and natural macromolecules. Such large molecules exhibit unusual and specific properties as compared to small molecules and a large field has developed in unraveling the scientific foundations of this behavior, both in the synthetic and the biological areas.
Macromolecular Science (MACROMOL)
MACROMOL 410 / BIOMEDE 410 / MATSCIE 410. Design and Applications of Biomaterials
MATSCIE 220 or 250 with a grade of C- or better; or graduate standing. (Prerequisites enforced at registration.) (3). (BS). May not be repeated for credit.

Biomaterials and their physiological interactions. Materials used in medicine/dentistry: metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, resorbable, smart, natural materials. Material response/degradation: mechanical breakdown, corrosion, dissolution, leaching, chemical degradation, wear. Host responses: foreign body reactions, inflammation, wound healing, carcinogenicity, immunogenicity, cytotoxicity, infection, local/systemic effects.
