BME 337 BME 337. Nanomedicine. 3 Hours.
Restricted to biomedical engineering majors. Explore the fundamental properties, synthesis, and characterization of nanomaterials, including their applications in nanomedicine. Discuss micro- and nano-particles for drug delivery and imaging, microfluidics for in vitro diagnostics and biological systems modeling, and nanomaterials and platforms for biological applications. Examine biomedical applications such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and infectious diseases. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Biomedical Engineering 337 and 377T (Topic: Nanomedicine) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Biomedical Engineering 349 and 352 with a grade of at least C- in each.
