Summary

 

Advanced Physiological Monitoring and Data Analysis (UG) - BIOE97160

Aims

 The course will be an advanced level course that will focus on three core aspects of biological and clinical measurement.The measurement topics will principally be supported using selected papers from the recent literature that illustrate the benefits of using time domain data to understand physiological and pathological processes. 

  • Data handling and fitness for purpose (Statistics of measurement)
  • Chemical measurement in cells and in vivo: Sensors and Biosensors + detection methods
    • a. Electrochemical sensors
    • b. Bioassays
  • Challanges of chemical monitoring of human tissue (Blood, urine, sweat)
  • Apporaches to invasive monitoring of tissue (Microdialysis, implated sensors and Biosensors)

 

Role

Lecturer

Medical Device Certification (UG) - BIOE96034

Aims

 

This course is aimed at teaching key information and skills needed by professional engineers in the development of medical systems and devices; specifically in the preparation of a project for CE certification (or regulatory approval in the appropriate environment)

Its major components are:

  • The regulatory framework, environment and procedures
  • Product Development for medical devices 
  • Safety, hazards and safe working practices

 

 

 

 

Role

Lecturer

Molecules and Energetics 1 - BIOE40008

Aims

This module aims to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the chemistry and materials science principles related to Bioengineering including:
The main functional groups in organic molecules, their roles in building more complex structures and functionalising surfaces.
The foundations of classical thermodynamics and applications in biomedical engineering and molecular sciences
Chemical kinetics, Fick's laws and steady state diffusion
This module also aims to build the wet lab skills of students including: Preparing a range of molecules, polymers and materials; monitoring chemical reactions and analysing reaction kinetics; developping assays to analyse and characterise chemical and physical properties of molecules. 

Role

Lecturer

Bioengineering Science 1 - BIOE40001

Aims

This module aims to provide you with a fundamental understanding of the chemistry and materials science principles related to Bioengineering including: How material properties are governed by their structure at different length scales – from sub-atomic to macroscale. The foundations of classical thermodynamics and applications in biomedical engineering and molecular sciences Chemical kinetics, Fick's laws and steady state diffusion
