CISM Advanced School: Skeletal Tissue and Engineering Mechanics
17-21 September 2012, Udine/ Italy
The course covers topics concerning the key challenges of contemporary tissue engineering strategies resulting from (at least) two competing requirements:
the tissue engineering scaffolds must
- exhibit a sufficient mechanical competence comparable to natural bone and
- within the living organism, it should be continously resorbed and replaces by natural bone.
The course gathers experts from the fields of applied mechanics, biology, and chemistry, in order to give the cutting-edge view on what the latest ingredients of tissue engineering for load-carrying organs are.
