Cell and Tissue Engineering

Cell and tissue engineering is the application of physical and engineering principles to understand and control cell and tissue behavior. Cellular focuses on cell-level phenomena, while tissue engineering and regenerative medicine seek to generate or stimulate new tissue for disease treatment. This track will help students understand biomaterial designing, genetic engineering, cellular therapy technology and stem cell engineering, which includes platforms to expand, implant, and mobilize stem cells for tissue repair and replacement.

Curriculum

This course aims to preparing engineering minds who can:

  • Design biocompatible materials engineered as replacements for damaged tissues.
  • Design tissue-engineered constructs to promote desirable cell behavior, leading to enhanced effectiveness inside the body.
  • Work in coordination with the life scientists, chemists and medical scientists in order to conduct research to find out the effective methods of cellular therapy and regenerative medicine.
  • Design 3D printed organs for transplantation and/or drug testing purposes.
  • Use principles of synthetic biology to solve the problems of healthcare
  • Assist doctors and researchers in cellular therapy procedures
  • Prepare procedures, technical reports, publish research papers and also make recommendations based on the conducted research and their outcomes.
