James D Bryers
Examines advanced topics in molecular diffusion, reaction kinetics, and convective transport modeling as applied to biological systems. Includes mathematical analysis and numerical simulation techniques applied to: Non-Fickian diffusion, rotational versus translational diffusion, immobilized enzyme kinetics, drug release, and gene delivery. Offered: A.
This course presents advanced topics in forces acting on molecules of biological interest, such as inter- and intra-molecule forces, diffusion, reactions, and surface adsorption. Genetic methods required to manipulate native molecular structure or to design new molecules will be presented. Analytical methods required to quantify molecule dynamics in various biological systems will also be presented.
