BME 6550: Special Topics in Biomedical Engineering
Credits: 1–3
Applies engineering science, design methods, and system analysis to developing areas and current problems in biomedical engineering. Topics vary by semester.
BIOP 8201: Biophysical Principles I
Credits: 2
This course will introduce students to some of the physical and chemical underpinnings of molecular biophysics. Physical principles will be discussed and related to how they govern biological systems and how they enable important biophysical techniques. Topics: Equilibrium thermodynamics: mean behavior of ensembles at equilibrium, and Biological fluctuations: deviations from the mean Prerequisite: BIMS 6000
BIOP 8301: Biophysical Principles II
Credits: 2
This course will introduce students to some of the physical and chemical underpinnings of molecular biophysics. Physical principles will be discussed and related to how they govern biological systems and how they enable important biophysical techniques. Topics: Molecules out of equilibrium: kinetic processes, enzymology, and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, and Statistical physics of heterogeneity Prerequisites: BIOP 8201, Biophysical Principles I
BME 8999: Master's Research
Credits: 1–12
Master's Research
MICR 9995: Research in Microbiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases
Credits: 1–12
Research in microbiological related disciplines, e.g. cancer, immunology, bacteriology, virology, infectious diseases, cell signaling, nuclear transport, host-pathogen interactions, gene expression, etc.
BME 9999: Dissertation
Credits: 1–12
Formal record of student commitment to doctoral research under the guidance of a faculty advisor. May be repeated as necessary.
BIOP 9999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
