Global populations are living longer, and consequently the demand for more sophisticated biomedical devices is growing. It is important to consider the materials used throughout a product’s lifecycle, i.e. from design to testing, through regulatory approvals, production and the end of life. But how can we prepare students to enter this multi-disciplinary field?

In this live webinar, we’ll show how the Bioengineering Edition in CES EduPack can help students understand why some materials are more appropriate than others for particular applications. With support from science notes, video tutorials and learning resources, students can quickly work their way through materials selection exercises as demonstrated in the demo.

What you will learn

  • Be inspired by practical ideas for engaging students with materials selection for bioengineering
  • View a materials selection case study focused on biomaterials
  • Learn what data is available for education and research in medical devices with CES EduPack and the ASM Medical Materials database
  • Find out how the CES EduPack software supports materials-related teaching across the curriculum.

Who should take part?

  • Anyone teaching bioengineering-related subjects in engineering, science, or design—find out how CES EduPack could support your teaching
 

About the presenters

Dr. Lakshana Mohee Dr. Lakshana Mohee completed a PhD in the Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials at the Department of Materials and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. Her technical background is collagen scaffolds for tissue engineering, as well as other bioengineering areas. Currently at Granta, she supports Universities in Canada, Sweden, and Poland, as well as parts of the USA. She was born in Mauritius and moved to France for her undergraduate studies in Materials Science and Engineering in a French Engineering School called INSA Rennes. She completed her Master’s Degree in Biomaterials at the same institution. During her studies, she had research internships in Canada and Singapore, and an industrial placement in Mauritius.
Dr. Harriet Parnell Dr. Harriet Parnell is an Associate Specialist for Materials Science and Engineering and helps to create new teaching resources. She has a degree in Biomedical Materials Science and a PhD in Materials Engineering
and Materials Design, both of which she completed at the University of Nottingham, UK. She has a technical background in mid-infrared fiber-optic materials, specifically chalcogenide glasses, and their application in
remote biosensing.

About CES EduPack

CES EduPack is the world-leading teaching resource for materials in engineering, science, processing, and design. It provides a comprehensive database of materials and process information and powerful tools to visualise data, select materials, assess environmental impact, and model hybrid materials and the cost of manufacturing. A range of supporting lectures, projects, case studies, and exercises are provided via Granta’s Education Hub. With specialist editions for specific disciplines, and three levels of the database and software to suit varying needs in all years of undergraduate study and in postgraduate teaching, CES EduPack is a curriculum-wide resource.
