Supervisor:
Department of Natural Sciences
Synopsis:

The course offers clear information about the current possibilities of using biomaterials in medicine and specific areas of research. Attention is paid mainly to aspects of biocompatibility in clinical practice.

Requirements:

As a standard, teaching takes place in contact form and the course ends with an oral exam, which is preceded by written preparation. If the number of students is less than 5, teaching can take place in the form of guided self-study with regular consultations. Furthermore, it is required to prepare a written study by the student on a given topic in the field. The condition for admission to the exam is the completion of two laboratory exercises (evidenced by a protocol signed by the student, the head of the exercise and the guarantor of the course). Protocols will be archived.
