Teaching

Professor Nelson has developed the following courses:

Fundamentals of Bioegineering (CBE 262 / EGR 263)
Cloned cats. Genetically modified organisms. Pacemakers. Insulin pumps. Bioengineering is by nature an interdisciplinary field focused on understanding and improving the human condition. This course provides a hands-on applications-based introduction to the field for both engineering and non-engineering students.

Next offered: Fall 2016

 

Quantitative Physiology & Tissue Design (CBE 439/539)
This course covers the quantitative tools used to understand the human body. We examine cells, tissues, and organs using principles from engineering kinetics and transport processes. Topics include: cell physiology; organ system physiology (including the cardiovascular, renal, and respiratory systems); and pathophysiology.

Previously offered: Spring 2009 (4.5 rating; Commendation for Outstanding Teaching); Fall 2011; Spring 2015

 

Physical Basis of Human Disease (CBE 440/540)
This course covers major diseases (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, infectious diseases), the physical changes that inflict morbidity and mortality, the design constraints for treatment, and emerging technologies that take into account these physical hurdles. We examine the mass transport and biophysical limitations of the human body and recent advances from the fields of drug delivery, gene therapy, tissue engineering, and nanotechnology.

Next offered: Spring 2017
Previously offered: Fall 2010 (4.7 rating; Commendation for Outstanding Teaching); Spring 2014
