Introduction to continuum theory and computational simulation of living matter. Kinematics of finite growth. Balance equations in open system thermodynamics. Constitutive equations for living systems. Custom-designed finite element solution strategies. Analytical solutions for simple model problems. Numerical solutions for clinically relevant problems such as: bone remodeling; wound healing; tumor growth; atherosclerosis; heart failure; tissue expansion; and high performance training.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

ME 387: Soft Tissue Mechanics

Structure/function relationships and mechanical properties of soft tissues, including nonlinear elasticity, viscoelasticity, and poroelasticity.
Terms: Sum | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

ORTHO 260: Tissue Engineering (BIOE 260)

Principles of tissue engineering and design strategies for practical applications for tissue repair. Topics include tissue morphogenesis, stem cells, biomaterials, controlled drug and gene delivery, and paper discussions. Students will learn skills for lab research through interactive lectures, paper discussions and research proposal development. Students work in small teams to work on develop research proposal for authentic tissue engineering problems. Lab sessions will teach techniques for culturing cells in 3D, as well as fabricating and characterizing hydrogels as 3D cell niche.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

ORTHO 270: Orthopaedic Tissue Engineering

Biological principles underlying the use of engineering strategies and biocompatible materials for tissue repair and regeneration. Structure, physiology, and mechanics of articular cartilage, bone, and dense soft connective tissues. Current ideas, approaches, and applications being implemented as therapeutic regimens for arthritis, spinal deformities, and limb salvage. Multidisciplinary constraints on the design and creation of tissue constructs. Students enrolling for 2 units prepare a presentation and final project. Prerequisite: familiarity with basic cell and molecular mechanisms underlying tissue differentiation.

RAD 70N: Surgery, Without All the Blood

What if you could do brain surgery completely noninvasively? This is possible now. There are many ways to focus energy into the body, and these can be used for surgery. We will explore methods for minimally invasive treatments of various conditions such as cancer, atrial fibrillation, and movement disorders. We will start with radiation therapy and its application to cancer. We will discuss the application of thermal energy to heat and ablate tissue. We'll discuss delivery systems including ultrasound, laser, and radiofrequency ablation systems, as well as monitoring imaging methods MRI, CT and ultrasound. Lastly, we will discuss neuromodulation and neurostimulation with deep brain simulators, transcranial magnetic stimulation, direct current stimulation, and ultrasound. We will touch on the biology of these treatments and their clinical application, but the emphasis is on the physics and engineering. High school Physics required.

SURG 68Q: Current Concepts in Transplantation

Preference to sophomores. Biological aspects of cell and organ transplantation, including issues that arise in the popular media. Diseases for which transplantation is a treatment, the state of the art in human transplantation, transplantation of animal tissue into humans (xenotransplantation), development of new tissue and organs in the laboratory (tissue engineering and cloning), and development of drugs and biological strategies to promote long-term survival of the tissue or organ (tolerance). How to write a scientific abstract, critique scientific literature, and research and present topics in contemporary transplantation.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: Writing 2 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

SURG 70Q: Surgical Anatomy of the Hand: From Rodin to Reconstruction

The surgical anatomy of the hand is extremely complex in terms of structure and function. Exploration of the anatomy of the hand in different contexts: its representation in art forms, the historical development of the study of hand anatomy, current operative techniques for reconstruction, advances in tissue engineering, and the future of hand transplantation.
