The Tissue Engineer’s Toolkit: Design and evaluation of Regenerative Therapies (3 Credits)
组织工程实用工具: 再生疗法的设计与评价
Class: 8-11 AM, M-F, July 2–20, 2018
Tissue engineering/regenerative medicine requires the capability to regulate cellular behaviors such as proliferation, migration, and differentiation. This course will introduce engineering students to 1) the therapeutic tools we have available for this purpose, including soluble growth factors, insoluble adhesion ligands, scaffold topographic features, and externally applied mechanical forces and 2) the experimental tools to evaluate cellular and tissue responses to therapeutic treatment including high throughput genomic analysis, quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction, ELISA, Western blotting, immunohistochemical staining, and loss of function techniques to confirm therapeutic mechanisms.
Suitable for Year 3 &4 & graduate students
