BME 505 - All Things Carbon

3 Credit Hours
Carbon is the basis of life; as such biomedical engineering students have the ability to study this element along with associated biological applications. Diamond-like carbon has potential as a coating for orthopedic implants. Nano-crystalline diamond can be used as a biosensor. Carbon nanotubes have applications in pharmacy and medicine due to their large surface area. Carbon is a suitable coating for magnetic nanoparticles, which can be used for hyperthermia and magnetic resonance imaging. In summary, the ability of carbon to enhance medical diagnostics and treatment is wide-ranging and not fully exploited. Students will learn current applications of carbon in medicine and be able to project future uses once this course is completed.
