The seminar will introduce current research in biomedical engineering to graduate students who have no or little background in the field. Its goal is to enable graduate students in science and engineering fields to assess how their research interests may mesh with current biomedical research. The seminar will begin with an introduction to the fundamentals of biomedical engineering, and then cover drug discovery and biomedical devices; micro and nanofabrication for smart materials; from DNA to cells/organs/tissue; disease control; electrophysics and electrical injury; and case studies.

Other Requirements:
Open to Juniors, Seniors, and Graduate Students Only.

Other information:
The course will be taught jointly by professors Robert Austin (PHY), Cliff Brangwynne (CBE), Simon Levin (EEB), James Link (CBE), Manuel Llinas(MolBio), Adel Mahmoud (Molbio), Michael McAlpine (MAE), and Robert Stengel (MAE).
