BIOE 498 AL - Immunoengineering
Last offered Spring 2024
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in bioengineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated if topics vary.
Students will explore concepts surrounding the field of immunoengineering, with a focus on understanding engineering approaches in both basic and translational research, as applied to the immune system and its manipulation for disease intervention and management. Students will rigorously investigate design principles underlying immunologically-based therapies and diagnostics. Critical analysis of scientific findings will be facilitated through instructor-led lectures, student-led literature discussions, and in-class activities and homework. Through activities and assignments, students should gain a deeper understanding of the underlying physical, chemical, and biological components that have facilitated immunogengineering advances, with an emphasis on developing novel, innovative solutions to address limitations in existing technology. Assignments, exams, and in-class activities will focus on critical analysis and thoughtful evaluation of data and conclusions, as well as effective writ
