20.360[J] Tissue Engineering for Analysis, Prevention, and Treatment of Human Disease
Analysis of fundamental processes in tissue engineering with an emphasis on use of comparative animal models and in vitro tissue engineered models to understand human disease and develop therapies for human disease and for regenerating human tissues and organs. using representative examples of metabolic tissue (e.g., liver) and connective tissue (e.g., bone). Design principles and engineering approaches (e.g., use of synthetic materials) for controlling receptor-mediated processes such as cell migration, growth, and differentiation. Mass transfer limitations in design of devices for cell encapsulation and in scaffold-guided regeneration. Guided organization of multicellular structures. Current clinical prospects.
20.360[J] will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by Staff.
