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.
