Tissue Engineering Laboratory
B M E 511
( 1 Credits )
Tissue engineering refers to the generation of biological substitutes to restore, maintain, or improve tissue function. Laboratory techniques are multi-disciplinary, from basic biological sciences, engineering, and biotechnology. Engineering approaches and analysis will be applied to theses techniques.
