    Overview

    The main objective is to expose students to smart drug delivery systems using hydrogels, beads, and nanomaterials to understand how biomedical engineers interface with the field of pharmaceutical science.The focus will be shifted toward physiological measurements, and students will use electrophysiology laboratory equipment and software to measure and analyze their heart activity, muscle, and brain electrical signals to learn how biomedical engineers interface with the world of physiology

    Example Activities

    • Lectures to introduce students to the topic related to the hands-on activities
    • Preparation of hydrogels with different polymers and crosslinkers
    • Quantification of proteins and other model molecules using spectroscopy techniques
    • Analysis of physiological data using electrodes
    • Small presentations to showcase their experience
