The goal of this course is to investigate the cardiovascular system using a quantitative, model-oriented approach. The course will address the unique cardiac features that allow for cardiac electrical conduction and the resulting blood flow in the circulatory system through a series of lectures, selected readings, and assignments. Topics are organized in two segments: (1) Electrophysiology focused on the biophysics of single-cell to organ systems in health and disease, (2) Cardiovascular mechanics and CNS regulation of blood circulation. Students will complete two research-based projects throughout the semester that each investigate emerging engineering technologies that are beginning to reshape the standards of clinical care.
