Ceramics vs. Polymers for Bone Tissue Engineering
In the recent years a huge shift occurred from bio-stable materials to biodegradable
materials for medical applications. A biomaterial can
1. Can you explain the differences between erosion and degradation as the authors
are using them?
Polymer degradation was viewed negatively as a process where properties and
performance weakened with time. Chemical degradat
Tufts University today announced that it has licensed a novel silk technology for the
treatment of chronic skin wounds.
Silkworms produce polyamino acid-based (silk protein) cocoons to protect themselves

Bio fluid mechanics is the study of the motion of biological fluids in any context.
Bio fluid dynamics of human body systems studies fluid motion within our body and in
medical devices and the transport of chemicals across biological and membranes. There
The Role of RBDs in the non-Newtonian Behavior of Blood
The objective of this experiment is to measure the viscosity of blood as a function of
hematocrit and to evaluate its Newtonian and non-Newtonian behavior. Also, the
Pre-lab #4: Osmotic Properties of Human Red Blood Cells
The objective of this experiment is to understand the properties of osmosis by
measuring the effects of changes in osmoloarity on red blood cell volume.
