BMEN 7400 Cell and Tissue Engineering

This course focusses on the fundamentals of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The key topic areas include the structure/function relationships of tissues, fundamental approaches to engineering tissues, and critical challenges for regenerative medicine. In addition, evaluation techniques to assess biological and functional properties of engineered tissues will be identified. Current research topics in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine will be incorporated through class discussion. A laboratory module is included to provide hands-on experience with cell culture.
