APPLICATIONS OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING FOR THERAPIES OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

Taipei Medical University

Taipei , Taiwan
English Requirements: TOEFL ITP, TOEFL iBT, IELTS
English Score: TOEFL iBT 79 or IELTS 5.5 or above
Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of the death in the world, resulting more total deaths than all cancers combined. During a heart attack, approximately 1,000,000,000 contractile cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) die due to oxygen deprivation. For patients who survive the initial heart attack, their damaged heart will struggle to provide oxygenated blood to meet demands of the body. The lost cardiomyocytes are replaced by non-contractile collagen/scar tissue (pathogenic remodelling) and many patients progress to heart failure. There are very few current treatments to prevent this process from occurring. In this program we can discuss the latest research into ways to reduce cardiac damage, pathogenic remodelling and encourage regeneration. That includes medical devices to support the heart, biomaterials to improve repair, and stem cells, nanomedicines and gene therapies to aid in regeneration.
