Biomedical Process Engineering

This course introduces students to applications of chemical engineering fundamentals to biomedical systems. Students analyze and design biomedical processes. The basic biochemistry and physiology required for understanding of biomedical systems are presented. Advanced principles of mass transfer, heat transfer, fluid flow and chemical reaction are used to analyze or design drug delivery systems, pharmacokinetic models, the circulatory system, transport across cell membranes, and human and artificial organs. Laboratory experiments and demonstrations will be integrated throughout the course.
