Unformatted text preview: 125:306 Biomedical Kinetics and Thermodynamics Instructor: Prof. Francois Berthiaume BME-217 fberthia@rci.rutgers.edu Teaching Assistant: Daniel S. Duffield duffied@gmail.com Nuts and Bolts Syllabus, homeworks, etc. on sakai.rutgers.edu Goals: Provide fundamental understanding of thermodynamics and kinetics as applied to physiology and biomedical technologies. Based on these principles, you should be able to: apply mass and energy conservation equations to biological phases and reactions use thermodynamic equations to quantify biomolecular binding interactions and energy interchanges in biochemical systems (e.g., metabolism, membrane transport) use kinetic analysis to understand biomolecular rate processes (e.g., enzyme catalysis) and to describe systems-level physiological phenomena (e.g., pharmacokinetics) Nuts and Bolts Textbooks Tinoco, Jr., K. Sauer, J.C. Wang, and J. Puglisi, Physical Chemistry: Principles and Applications in Biological Systems, 4 th ed . Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, 2002. R.L. Fournier. Basic Transport Phenomena in Biomedical Engineering. Taylor and Francis, Philadelphia, PA, 1999. Grading Problem sets 20% Quizzes 10% - the lowest is dropped Midterm I 20% Midterm II 20% your best exam is weighed 30% Final exam 30% Total 100% Nuts and Bolts Problem sets assigned > 1 week in advance you may work with others, but each student must turn in their own work and solutions Homeworks are to be handed in at the beginning of class , not the end show your work as the method is more important than the answer. Quizzes typically 20 min based on recent material lowest quiz score will be dropped Nuts and Bolts Exams 3 exams (2 midterms and final) each exam emphasizes what was covered since last exam final is not cumulative in the usual sense but you will still...
