Enabling student projects in bioengineering and medical devices


Join us for a case study demonstration of materials selection for a medical device. We’ll show data and software tools that can be used to set up realistic and engaging student projects.

What you will learn

  • See what data is available for education and research in medical devices with CES EduPack and the ASM Medical Devices database
  • Understand how combining data on materials, biocompatibility, and devices approved by the FDA enables compelling student projects
  • View a case study example – materials selection for a suture anchor
  • Discuss how similar projects could support your teaching of bioengineering or related topics
CES EduPack Bioengineering Edition

Who should take part?

  • Lecturers with bioengineering as a component of their courses, where materials selection for real-world applications is relevant
 

About the presenters

Amy Moll Dr. Sarah Egan has led projects at Granta Design that have developed a series of innovative knowledge resources for medical device materials and, more recently, for human biological materials. Dr Egan's background in materials engineering for medical applications includes a PhD in Biomaterials from the University of Cambridge and an MEng in Materials Engineering in Medicine from Queen Mary College, University of London. As Medical Devices Product Manager at Granta she currently specializes in the compilation and application of materials data, the development and implementation of software for materials selection, and systems to enable materials information management in the medical device industry.
Hannah Melia Hannah Melia is the Product Manager responsible for the development of CES EduPack and associated teaching resources. She has a degree in Materials Science and Metallurgy and a Post Graduate Certificate in Design, Manufacturing and Management from the University of Cambridge. She has worked in the United States and Germany on medical device design and technology transfer. Over the last 9 years she has interacted with academics that use CES EduPack around the world.
