Course Information for 7150 - Introduction to Biomimetic Engineering
View schedules: Spring 2017 class schedule (pdf) Fall 2017 schedule not yet available
|Primary Instructor:|| Russell J. Stewart|
|Frequency Offered:||As Needed|
|Catalog Description:|| Integration of energy transduction and transport of matter found in living systems with mimetic engineering of the same processes in laboratory. After studying selected biological examples, students design a biomimetic system that performs an identical or similar function and measures its performance. The course consists of laboratory experiments, tutorial, and a set of lectures. The tutorials are designed to teach students how to culture and use cells, design membrane mimetic surfaces using Langmuir-Blodgett trough and liposomes, use fluorescent markers and modern spectroscopic and optical microscopic techniques, such as DIC and 3-D confocal microscopy.
Note: this course is unlikely to be offered in 2008/2009.|
