Biointerface Engineering

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and NPTEL via Swayam


The aim of the course is to create a surface chemical way of thinking when considering biomedical approaches, products and applications. The course will focus on surface and surface chemistry and its interactions with biomacromolecules. This course will highlight the role of interfacial phenomena towards behavior of biomolecules on surfaces. The first half of this course will cover basic physical chemistry of surfaces and interfaces, and common experimental methods for surface characterization. The second part of the course will emphasize interactions of biological systems with surfaces and modified surfaces at the molecular and cellular levels.
Under graduate and post graduate students, professional, practitioner in the discipline of Biosciences and Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering and Material Science and Engineering. PREREQUISITES : Bachelor Degree in any Engineering disciplineINDUSTRIES SUPPORT :Industries dealing with Biomedical implants and devices and Biomaterials
