BME 450 Biotransport Processes

Credits

3 cr.

Prerequisite

CHEM 106, MATH 236, and BME 301.

Course Description

Cellular transport and electrical properties from a combined biological, physical, and engineering point of view. Matter transport across cellular membranes involving diffusion, osmosis, coupled solute and solvent transport, carrier-mediated transport, and ion transport. Homeostatic mechanisms involved in maintaining cellular solute concentrations, volume, and potential. Electrically inexcitable and excitable cells, lumped parameter and distributed-parameter cell models, linear electric properties of cells, and voltage gated ion channels.
