BMEN 6930 Engineering in Regenerative Medicine

This course focuses on state-of-the art technologies and scientific discoveries in regenerative medicine. Topics to be covered include: stem cell engineering, tissue engineering, the in vivo niche, reprogramming cell pluripotency, controlling the immune response, pre-clinical animal models, and recent clinical trials. Approaches for translating bench-top science into clinical products, including biomanufacturing and regulatory pathways, will also be addressed. The format of the class will be divided between lectures, class discussion of recent publications, and independent student projects.
