Frontiers of Biomedical Engineering - Lecture 6
Lecture 6 - Cell Culture Engineering (cont.)
Professor Saltzman describes the processes of fertilization and embryogenesis. Professor Saltzman then talks about the definition and classification of different types of stem cells, where stem cells are found in the body, and the potential for use of stem cells in treating diseases. Some challenges in this type of therapy are also discussed. Finally, Professor Saltzman introduces the exponential equation for cell growth and the concept of cell "doubling time."
