BMES 541 Nano and Molecular Mechanics of Biological Materials 3.0 Credits
This course aims to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and latest scientific developments in molecular mechanics of biological materials. The first half of the course will introduce interdisciplinary theoretical background including molecular physics, electrostatics, colloidal science, biocompatibility and polymer mechanics. The second half will describe the most recent advances in nanotechnology and nanomechanics-related biomechanical and biomedical research. Students are expected to understand the fundamental knowledge of the molecular-level phenomena in biological systems, and to grasp the basic design and operation principles of nanomechanical instruments.
