Frontiers of Biomedical Engineering

Course Summary

This course is based on BENG 100 Frontiers of Biomedical Engineering, Spring 2008 made available by Yale University: Open Yale under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.
The course covers basic concepts of biomedical engineering and their connection with the spectrum of human activity. It serves as an introduction to the fundamental science and engineering on which biomedical engineering is based. Case studies of drugs and medical products illustrate the product development-product testing cycle, patent protection, and FDA approval. It is designed for science and non-science majors.

This course is conducted by Prof. W. Mark Saltzman who is the Goizueta Foundation Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Yale University. He is also the chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
