BME 369C BME 369C. Matrices, Organoids, and Microphysiological Systems. 3 Hours.
Restricted to biomedical engineering majors. Explore current technologies and scientific literature seeking to construct human-relevant, in vitro systems representing tissues, organs, and disease physiologies as platforms for development of new therapies. Focus on how concepts in biomaterials, stem cell biology, microfluidics, additive manufacturing, and biosensing are integrated to create such platforms. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Biomedical Engineering 369C and 377T (Topic: Matrices/Organs/Microphys Sys) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Biomedical Engineering 352 and 365S with a grade of at least C- in each.
