Biomaterials Tutorial

Biomaterials science and engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field intersecting medicine, biology, physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering and ethics, just to name a few of key players. UWEB offers below a series of short tutorials on key subjects and materials impacting biomaterials science and engineering. Additional detail can be found in introductory textbooks such as Biomaterials Science: An Introduction to Materials in Medicine, 2nd edition (Elsevier Publishers, 2004), in short courses and in academic courses, for example University of Washington course BioE492 (Introduction to Biomaterials).

Some of the tutorials are still under construction at this time.
