Summation

  • Attendees will leave this course with a foundational knowledge of the interface between metals and biology, the types of alloys used in biomedical devices and implants, testing and remediation methods, and the types of degradation that can impact the service life of these devices.

AMPP’s Corrosion Technical Series is now offering a new 6-hour short course on corrosion prevention in metallic biomaterials and biomedical devices.

What happens to metallic implants and medical devices when placed in the human body?

The biological interaction between metallic biomaterials and corrosion is endlessly complex and comes with potentially beneficial or dangerous effects.

In this short course, a panel of biomaterials and tribocorrosion experts from the academic, regulatory and industry sectors will discuss several facets of corrosion’s impacts in metallic biomaterials and biomedical devices; from those intended to corrode such as biodegradable stents and sutures/clips, to those meant to last such as hip and knee implants.

Attendees will leave this course with a foundational knowledge of the interface between metals and biology, the types of alloys used in biomedical devices and implants, testing and remediation methods, and the types of degradation that can impact the service life of these devices.

Featured lecturers include:

  • Jeremy Gilbert, Ph.D., FBSE, FAIMBE, Hansjorg Wyss Endowed Chair, Professor of Bioengineering Clemson University and the Director, Clemson – MUSC Bioengineering Program Medical University of South Carolina
  • Bruce Pound, Senior Managing Scientist and Medical Devices Consultant at Exponent
  • Michael Bryant, Associate Professor, University of Leeds, United Kingdom
  • Stephanie ​Smith, PhD, Biomedical Engineer, Intracolumnar Spinal Devices Team Food & Drug Administration

This short course is offered in a live, interactive, virtual format with knowledge checks and Q&A sessions to ensure students gain a thorough understanding of the course material. At the end, participants can earn a certificate of completion and professional development hours (PDHs) to demonstrate their understanding of the materials covered in the course.
