BME 6110 - Stem Cell Bioengineering

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite or corequisite: cellular biology (BME 3010  or equivalent) and molecular biology (BME 3020  or equivalent), and basic computer programming (Matlab preferred: CS 1112  or equivalent). Enrollment limited to: graduate standing or permision of instructor.

B. Cosgrove.

This course explores the interface of stem cell biology and bioengineering and will examine how quantitative analysis and modeling approaches inform stem cell-based biotechnologies and medical therapies. The course covers (i) cell and molecular biotechnology concepts, (ii) embryonic and adult stem cell biology fundamentals, (iii) analysis, design, and production of biomolecular therapies to regulate stem cell function, and (iv) generation of biomimetic and bioreactor environments to generate cell biotechnological products, including stem cell derivatives. This course is designed for graduate students in the biological and/or engineering sciences but will be accessible and engaging for Master’s students and advanced undergraduates (with instructor permission), especially those with successful experiences with the pre-requisite material.
