HST.410J Projects in Microscale Engineering for the Life Sciences


Class Info

A project-based introduction to manipulating and characterizing cells and biological molecules using microfabricated tools. In the first half of the term, students perform laboratory exercises designed to introduce the design, manufacture, and use of microfluidic channels; techniques for sorting and manipulating cells and biomolecules; and making quantitative measurements using optical detection and fluorescent labeling. In the second half of the term, students work in small groups to design and test a microfluidic device to solve a real-world problem of their choosing. Includes exercises in written and oral communication and team building. Limited to 20; preference to freshmen.

This class has no prerequisites.

HST.410J will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by M. Gray, A. Aranyosi and D. Freeman.

This class counts for a total of 9 credits.
