Advanced Physiological Monitoring and Data Analysis - BE9-MAPMDA


  • The course will be an advanced level course that will focus on three core aspects of biological and clinical measurement.

    • Data handling and fitness for purpose (Statistics of measurement)
    • Sampling (using microdialysis, microfluidics)
    • Biopotential measurement - particularly patch clamp measurement
    • Chemical measurement in cells and in vivo: Sensors and Biosensors + detection methods
      • a. Electrochemical sensors
      • b. Bioassays

    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. There will a non-examinable 'Guest lecture' illustrating the importance of Physiological monitoring.
