The mythological story of Prometheus, whose damaged liver repaired itself overnight, is one of the earliest instances of tissue regeneration. In modern times, regenerative medicine is an area of cutting edge research focused on growing functional tissues and organs in a petri dish, known as tissue engineering. In addition, regenerative medicine research is working on stem cell therapy, which is stimulating the body to heal itself. The underlying goal of regeneration is to harness nature’s power towards treating everything from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease to heart failure. This course will familiarize students with the science, design, and ethical considerations behind this area of cutting edge research. Through hands-on design activities and an introduction to the latest findings in research, students will be given the unique opportunity to step into the shoes of a biomedical engineer at the forefront of medical advancement.
