James D Bryers
Offered at a graduate level periodically by faculty members within the Department of Bioengineering; concerns areas of research activities with current and topical interest to bioengineers. Prerequisite: undergraduate or graduate courses (or equivalent) determined individually for each special topic.
This course presents advanced topics in molecular diffusion, reaction kinetics, and convective transport modeling as applied to biological systems. Mathematical analysis and numerical simulation techniques will be applied to such topics as: Non-Fickian diffusion, rotational versus translational diffusion, immobilized enzyme kinetics, drug release and gene delivery.
