EN.580.421. Systems Bioengineering I. 4.0 Credits.

A quantitative, model-oriented investigation of the cardiovascular system. Topics are organized in three segments. (1) Molecular/cellular physiology, including electrical signaling and muscle contraction. (2) Systems cardiovascular physiology, emphasizing circuit-diagram analysis of hemodynamics. (3) Cardio-vascular horizons and challenges for biomedical engineers, including heart failure and its investigation/treatment by computer simulation, by gene-array analysis, by stem-cell technology, and by mechanical devices (left-ventricular assist and total-heart replacement). Recommended Course Background: EN.580.221 and EN.580.222
