BIOL 4060 - Organ Development and Tissue Engineering


Why do most of our adult body tissues have limited regenerative capacity? How can terminally diseased organs be replaced? This course will cover the cellular mechanisms that regulate animal tissue formation, regeneration and repair in vivo. Students will gain insights into the opportunities, limitations, and risks of tissue engineering in vitro, as an emerging research field that may lead to revolutionary organ replacement strategies. Prerequisite: BIOL 3000
