The MSc in Biomaterials provides you with a thorough training in current clinically used biomaterials and state of the art advances in these in research. The clinical application module will cover generations of biomaterials in orthopaedics and cardiovascular. In addition it will aim to give an introduction to foreign body reactions to these materials. You will also be trained on advanced biomaterials including nanomaterials, natural materials and soft matter. Further, we will also introduce techniques associated with translation of research from lab to clinic. Additionally, there will be a 5 months long project component which will give you hands-on training on development and testing of novel biomaterials. This MSc is the ideal preparation for a career either in industry as a biomaterial scientist, or for cutting-edge academic research.
