A practical, hands-on lab rotation course giving students exposure to cutting-edge research methodology in a number of different areas, with a balance between biomedical engineering and biotechnology areas. A team approach is encouraged as students employ various laboratory techniques to carry out short-term projects. Students will either rotate through a number of different experimental procedures within a single investigator's laboratory or rotate through multiple faculty laboratories, learning a particular type of methodology for which the laboratory may be noted and uses frequently. The course may also provide laboratory experiences/demonstrations at sister campuses and industrial sites where faculty members have affiliations.

Investigations of a fundamental and/or applied nature representing an original contribution to the scholarly research literature of the field. PhD dissertations are often published in refereed journals or presented at major conferences. A written dissertation must be completed in accordance with the rules of the Graduate School. Admission to the course is based on successful completion of the PhD comprehensive examination and submission of a formal proposal endorsed by the student's graduate committee and submitted to the appropriate BMEMT Graduate Program Director.

Chemical principles and key concepts for bioengineers including chemical nomenclature, chemical syntheses, nucleic acid and protein chemistry, enzymology, metabolism, and others. Students will utilize the methods and concepts taught in this course for problem solving in biotechnology, biomanufacturing and the biopharmaceutical fields. This course also discusses manufacturing, validating, and using drugs, plastics, gels, polymers and fuels for biotechnology industry.

A discussion on the surface interactions between different biological tissues and biomaterials. Protein adsorption to biomaterials, selective protein surface binding, biomolecule-nanomaterial interactions, ligand-functionalized biomaterial surfaces, growth factors on biomaterial scaffolds, cell and tissue interactions with biomaterials, functionalization of materials to promote protein and cell interactions, hydrogel nanocomposites in biology and medicine, inflammatory response to implanted nanostructured materials, collagen-coated titanium surfaces, and prevention of postsurgical adhesions are the topics to be covered. This course will also focus on the principles of the surface interaction of implants in host environment.

Study under the supervision of a faculty member in an area covered in a regular course not currently being offered. Conditions and hours to be arranged.
