The Biomedical Engineering Biomedical Engineering Summer school offered at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) includes:
This course will cover fundamentals combined with up-to-date research topics in specific fields of Biomedical Engineering. Students will expand their knowledge on mass and heat transport in the human body. The lectures will also include basics of polymer science and electrospinning. The students will apply these fundamentals to the field of tissue engineering, polymeric scaffold engineering and deep temperature engineering (cryotechnology). They will learn about polymeric implants, how to design artificial lungs and kidneys as well as how to overcome the shortage of donor organs by engineering exemplarily living heart valves and vascular grafts in a bioreactor. In order to allow for long-term on-the-shelf availability, these engineered tissues have to be stored at deep temperatures in special freezers. Therefore, the students will be introduced to the topics of cryobiology and cryotechnology to be able to solve those storage requirements.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
