Course Descriptions

Biomedical engineers use science, engineering, and mathematics to understand and solve medical problems. The biomedical engineering program at Rose-Hulman produces engineers with the medical and biological expertise needed to solve health care problems during careers in technical and health-related industries, as well as in government or industrial laboratories.

BE 565 - Experimental Methods in Tissue-Biomaterial Interactions

  • Credit Hours: 3R-3L-4C
  • Term Available: S
  • Prerequisites: BE 361 - Biomaterials or consent of instructor
  • Corequisites: None

This course focuses on teaching students experimental methods used for investigations of tissue-biomaterial interactions. Topics include bioethics issues associated with experiments on cells, tissues, animals, and people; biosafety issues associated with cells/tissues from animals and humans; the design, critique, and statistical analysis of experiments. Students conduct hands-on investigations of cell-biomaterial interactions which require the use of common laboratory equipment, aseptic technique, mammalian cell culture, and current molecular methods to investigate cell viability, structure, and function.
