Department:Biomedical Engineering
Related URLs:

This course will provide exposure to basic biology and engineering problems associated with living systems and health care delivery. Examples will be used to illustrate how basic concepts and tools of science & engineering can be brought to bear in understanding, mimicking and utilizing biological processes. The course will focus on two areas (1) synthesis and integration of molecular and cellular level information for the purpose of understanding function (regulatory circuits, biomaterials, and organs) and designing therapies, and (2) designing information acquisition technology to enable model building and/or diagnosis. Exercises in model building and simulation are required to help students begin to build an integrated understanding of biological systems. Prerequisites: None
