BE-GY 9453 Engineering Tissue Regeneration

3 Credits
This course presents engineering design principles for stimulation and control of tissue repair through regenerative mechanisms. Based on approaches for control of cell differentiation and growth, the application of engineering to the modeling and design of systems, agents, and processes to stimulate regenerative repair of tissues will be discussed. Example topics such as stem cell delivery and microenvironment design; drug and gene delivery; role of signaling pathway modulation; extracellular vesicle-mediated communication; signaling via electrical, mechanical, and fluid transport control will be discussed.

Prerequisite(s): Biochemistry highly recommended and advisor’s approval
