This lecture course introduces students to the application of engineering fundamentals from transport and kinetic processes to vascular biology and medicine. The first half of the course addresses the derivation of the governing equations for Newtonian fluids and their solution in the creeping flow limit. The second half of the course considers how these concepts can be used to understand the behavior of a deformable cell near planar surfaces.
Course prerequisites: 
Undergraduate Transport Phenomena preferred.
Course instructor: 
Gagnon
