Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
Chemical Engineering : Soft tissue structure and function: tissue, cell, and molecular scales. Interstitial solute transport, modeling effective transport properties (diffusivity, partitioning). Poroelastic mechanics, modeling of mechanical properties (modulus, permeability). The electrical double layer, electrostatic component of modulus, modeling electrokinetic phenomena (streaming potential, electroosmosis). Applications: biomechanics, mechanobiology, tissue engineering, functional assessment, biomedical entrepreneurship.
Terms: Fall 2012
