125:201: INTRODUCTION TO BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING FALL 2011 INSTRUCTOR: PROF. FRANCOIS BERTHIAUME ( fberthia@rci.rutgers.edu ) 125:201 Introduction to Biomedical Engineering Fall 2011 Instructors: Professor François Berthiaume (Course Coordinator) fberthia@rci.rutgers.edu Office hours: Tuesdays 1 pm in BME 217 Professor Jeffrey Zahn jdzahn@rci.rutgers.edu Professor Nada Boustany nboustan@rci.rutgers.edu Teaching Assistants: Gabriel Yarmush (Problem Sets and General Assistance) Gabriel.yarmush@gmail.com Office hours: Thursdays 10 am in 2 nd floor BME lounge Melissa Przyborowski (Friday Topics Papers only) melissaap@gmail.com Web Page: http://sakai.rutgers.edu Lectures: Mondays, Thursdays & Fridays 8:40-10:00 am, BME 102 Course Description: This course introduces students to the basic principles of engineering applied to biomedical systems. The course is divided into four parts: (1) biochemical engineering; (2) biomechanics; (3) bioelectric phenomena; (4) special topics. The first part emphasizes the use of unit conversions, mass vs. moles, and mass balances applied to cells, organs, and whole living organisms. The second part emphasizes the use of mechanical principles to understand statics and dynamics applied to the body. The third part emphasizes the use of basic concepts of current and potential to understand the behavior of ions across cell membranes in excitable and nonexcitable cells. The fourth part is specifically taught on Fridays and given by guest lecturers who are experts in key areas of biomedical engineering. These lectures provide an overview of the various application areas of biomedical engineering, state of the art research, as well as a historical context of established biomedical engineering technologies. Textbook (required): An online textbook is required but provided free of charge on the course website. Software: None. Assessment: Exams 1, 2, and 3: 20% each. Homeworks: 20%. Friday topics papers: 20%. There is no cumulative final exam.
