Teaching

Fall 2014
ENGN 1510: Nanoengineering and Nanomedicine
Students in this course will develop a fundamental understanding of nanoengineering and its applications in medicine. We will discuss
nanomaterials synthesis, fabrication, and characterization. Applications of nanoengineered materials in medicine, including nanotechnology-
based drug delivery systems, nano-based imaging and diagnostics, and nanotechnology-based tissue engineering approaches will be explored in
depth. Host response to nanomaterials and nanotoxicology will also be discussed. Research methods in nanoengineering and nanomedicine will
be emphasized (critical analysis of scientific literature, effective oral and written communication).

Spring 2014
ENGN 1110: Transport and Biotransport Processes
Students in this course will develop a fundamental understanding of mass transport in chemical and biological systems. The course includes:
mechanisms of transport, biochemical interactions and separations, mass transport in reacting systems, absorption, membrane and transvascular
transport, electrophoretic separations, pharmacokinetics and drug transport, equilibrium stage processes, distillation and extraction. Other
features of the course include: design concepts, modern experimental and computing techniques, and laboratory exercises.
