IBIO-2250 Transport Phenomena in Biological Systems

Heat, mass and momentum transport processes are encountered in numerous biological problems and show considerable physical and mathematical similarities among them. A fundamental understanding of the conservation principles and constitutive laws that govern such processes is crucial for analyzing and addressing current and novel medical devices and treatments. During the course of the term, various topics of biomedical relevance will be covered including the transport of species at the cellular and physiological level, the transport characteristics of membranes, the rheology of blood, alveoli oxygen transport and the kinetics of chemical reactions.
