Course Number

Cell and tissue engineering is a field that relies heavily on experimental techniques. This laboratory course will consist of three six experiments that will provide students with valuable hands-on experience in cell and tissue engineering. Students will learn basic cell culture procedures and specialized techniques related to faculty expertise in cell engineering, microfluidics, gene therapy, microfabrication and cell encapsulation. Experiments include the basics of cell culture techniques, gene transfection and metabolic engineering, basics of cell-substrate interactions I, cell-substrate interactions II, and cell encapsulation and gel contraction. Co-listed with EN.530.451. Senior and Graduate students only; others, instructor permission required. Fall semester only. Lab Fee: $100
