Tutorial application and characterization of biomaterials

Course content:

After a brief theoretical introduction, students will learn how to prepare and formulate hydrogels in practice. In addition, extensive methods and techniques for rheological (viscosity, surface tension, viscoelastic behavior, polymerization time) and mechanical (elastic modulus, compressive strength) characterization of the materials will be developed and applied under supervision.


Recommendations for literature will be announced in the lecture as well as during the tutorial.


Participation in the lecture or exam “Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering”.


The registration modalities will be announced in the first week of lectures in the lecture, or for former participants of the course via a system message. A simple registration in TUCaN does not count as registration.
