BME 201 - Fundamentals of Biomechanics
Fall Semester, 4 Cr.
Course Description: Teaches static and dynamic rigid body mechanics with applications in prosthetics, human movement, and other biomedical topics.
BME 442 - Cell Motility & Molecular Machines
Spring Semester, 2 Cr.
Course Description: From single molecule motors transporting materials within cells to contracting muscle fibers, molecular engines come in a range of sizes and produce some of the most fascinating phenomena in biology. This course teaches the modern theories behind molecular engines, presuming only an elementary background in cell biology and mechanics. Prerequisites: permission of instructor.
