BME 4190 - Laboratory Techniques for Molecular, Cellular, and Systems Engineering

Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: BME 3010 BME 3020 , BME 3110  or BME 3210 . Enrollment limited to: BME majors. Permission of instructor required if additional seats are available.  Course serves as the MCSE Concentration Practicum Laboratory. BMDD students may also use this course to serve as their practicum lab. Satisfies the Engineering Communications requirement for BME majors.

C. Fischbach-Teschl, S.D. Archer.

This class will provide students with the skills needed for the design, fabrication, and characterization of experimental approaches relevant to Molecular, Cellular, and Systems engineering. Lectures will integrate three modules: the first module will focus on stem cell biology, differentiation, and characterization. The second module will provide a thorough understanding of polymeric scaffold design and characterization for tissue engineering applications. The third module will focus on analytic techniques suitable to analyze molecular, cellular, and systems-level signaling changes of cells in response to varied microenvironmental context. All three modules will be taught in a manner that will enable students to design and implement experimental approaches for cell manufacturing, tissue regeneration, and drug testing.
