Classes Previously Taught By Prof. Cochran

BIOE361/MATSCI381: Biomaterials in Regenerative Medicine

Introduction to materials design and engineering for regenerative medicine. We will explore how materials interact with cells through their micro- and nanostructure, mechanical properties, degradation characteristics, surface chemistry, and biochemistry. Specific examples include novel materials for drug and gene delivery, materials for stem cell proliferation and differentiation, and tissue engineering scaffolds. Prerequisites: undergraduate level chemistry and cell/molecular biology or biochemistry.

Syllabus

3 units, Winter Quarter (Cochran, J. and Heilshorn, S.) TR 11AM-12:15, not offered every year.


BIOE300A: Molecular and Cellular Engineering (previously BIOE200A)

The molecular and cellular bases of life from an engineering perspective. Quantitative analysis and engineering of biomolecules, molecular interactions, metabolism, signal transduction, and biophysical properties. Clinical motivations and biotechnology applications. Prerequisite: Biochemistry or consent of instructor.

Syllabus

3 units. Taught by Prof. Cochran in 2005 and 2006.
