MCEN 4171 - Biofluids on the Micro Scale Course uri icon



  • Introduces fundamental physical concepts and basic mechanisms of biological fluids in microscale. Elaborates on the application of fluid mechanics principles to major biological systems, including human organ systems and animal locomotion in microscale. Covers physiologically relevant fluid flow phenomena on the cellular level and the underlying physical mechanisms from an engineering perspective. Related state-of-art technologies such as organ-on-a-chip and micro/nano fabrication will be emphasized. Will enhance your understanding of organ-on-a-chip technologies and their broad applications. Same as BMEN 4171 and MCEN 5171 and BMEN 5171.
