Aims
In this laboratory course the students will acquire experimental skills related to polymer synthesis and characterization, as well as the processing of polymers into medical devices. The students will be able to analyse, discuss and present their results in a written report.
Content
In medical implants and -devices, polymer-based biomaterials play an essential role. This laboratory course covers a broad range of experiments in which the student prepares his/her own medical implant or device, and assesses its functionality.

Research topics that are treated during this course include:
  • Biodegradable polymer-based materials in implant devices and drug delivery
  • Ring-opening polymerization and network formation by photo-polymerization
  • Advanced (composite) biomaterials and microstructures
  • Well-defined polymers and nanoparticles
