Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
In this seminar, new materials and techniques are discussed which are applicable to biological or medical problems. In addition to current research topics from the field of "tissue engineering" also examples from "lab on chip" applications or additive manufacturing approaches are discussed.
The active contribution of the students, i.e. delivering a 30-minute presentation and participating in the discussion rounds following each presentation, is a key aspect of the seminar.
The number of participants is limited to 10 students.
