Subject: Bioengineering
Course Number: 225
Course Title: Mechanistic Modeling and Simulating of Biological Systems
Min units: 2      Max units: 4
School: Graduate Division
Department: Bioengineering Program

Course Description: Mechanism based, computational methods for modeling & simulating living systems (cells, tissues, etc.) and their use in new therapeutic development will be contrasted with established methods. Given a problem or objective, students will learn to identify model uses, develop specifications, and then select implementations enabling developing, constructing, validating, and iteratively revising multi-attribute, hierarchical, biomimetic analogues of pharmacologically responsive biological systems.
