ENGN 1520 - Cardiovascular Engineering
In this course, students will learn quantitative physiological function of the heart and vascular system, including cardiac biomechanics and vascular flow dynamics, through lectures and discussion of current scientific literature. A systems approach will integrate molecular biophysics, cell biology, tissue architecture, and organ-level function into a quantitative understanding of health and disease. Discussion topics will include pre-clinical regenerative therapies, stem cell ethics, and clinical trials. Prerequisites (all courses completed or concurrent): calculus, differential equations, mechanics of materials, fluid dynamics, and biotransport.
