Students will then engage in laboratory projects under direction of the faculty.

202  Advanced Dental Biomaterials Science I  (1 units)   Fall

Instructor(s): D. Fried       Prerequisite(s): Enrollment in a postgraduate program.

Restrictions: None       Activities: Lecture

First of two courses on scientific basis for selection and manipulation of restorative dentistry materials emphasizes mechanical properties and structure-property relationships of metals and alloys, atomic-level bonding and structure, defect structures, and their polymeric structure and properties.

203  Mineralized Tissues:Science, Engineering & Clinical Aspects  (2 units)   Spring

Instructor(s): S. Ho, S. Habelitz       Prerequisite(s): Enrollment in a postgraduate program.

Restrictions: None       Activities: Lecture

This course will emphasize Mineralized Tissues and the use of Biomaterials for the Craniofacial Complex. Focus is on understanding diverse aspects of craniofacial development, in particular the biology and engineering of mineralized tissue including the formation of specialized matrices which enable biomineralization, stem cell biology and morphogenesis, as well as etiologies of diseases and clinical approaches to tissue or organ repair.
