BIM Final Review 2

Lecture 3: Biomechanics and TE

Bone heals, cartilage doesn’t. Why? Cartilage isn't vascular
water, collagen (types I and II), glycosaminoglycans (GAG) Cartilage composition
Biomechanical forces can make cartilage Important in development to differentiate stem cells Normal loading is important in maintaining cartilage Can enhance regeneration Can be used in vitro in a bioreactor to help engineer more native-like neocartilage
Biomechanical forces can break cartilage Create osteoarthritis
Cartilage loading cycles per year 1-2 million cycles
Tissue engineering paradigm Cells, bioactive factors/signals, scaffolds
Recent work shows elements of paradigm can be used in combination or alone
The self-assembling process is a method to engineer cartilage that only requires cells Can use signals, but not needed. The process is scaffold-less
The self-assembling process Isolation of chondrocytes, seeding cells into cylindrical agarose mold, self-assembly into engineered cartilage
Stem cells can also be chondro-induced and self-assembled to form engineered cartilage Dermis isolated adult stem (DIAS) cells
Translating engineering advances to medicine (TEAM) Facility 3D scanning, design software, 3D printers, analysis software, catheter manufacturing, laser cutting/engraving, printed circuit board manufacturing Wet lab equipment, synthetic biology design, innovation space
Technology transfer paradigm Academic research, new technology, new company

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
