1) Implant of Bioabsorbable Polymer in Skin of Wistar Rats - Professor Eliana Duek
This project studies kinds of polymers degraded by hydrolysis, used for applications in the medical area as a temporary implantable device such as cutaneous healing, orthopedic devices, menisci, and others.
The main idea is that the implant of the polymer material undergoes degradation while the tissue in the defect area is repaired. The techniques to be used involve surgical procedure, anesthesia and histological analysis that proves the interaction polymer-tissue.
The student shall have basic knowledge of histology and of cells involved in inflammatory processes. The student must be able to participate in the seminars and group lectures. The student must use the computer, because he will work with practical in the laboratory, and this include implant of the materials in animals (rats). The techniques will be introduced to the student and then he will be able to work independently, under the tutor or the lab technicians supervision. The student must be able to develop a report and a lecture at the end of the work.
Surgery skin implant of devices aiming wound healing or burned.
The student must have basic knowledge of histology and cells involved in inflammatory processes. There is no limitations related to the student involvement in the project, because he can learn the other specific subjects that may appear. There is no legal limitations.
