## Description

Fundamentals of fluid dynamics and mass transport applied to analysis of biological systems. Quantitative understanding of microscopic to macroscopic phenomena in biological systems related to their sensing by imaging techniques. Molecular phenomena in both healthy tissue and disease using examples from cardiovascular problems and cancer using ultrasound, optical and MRI techniques.

Class meets MWF, 9:00-9:50am, in 218 Ceramics Building

## Course Objectives

- Apply the principles of transport to solve advanced problems
- Describe order of magnitude and scalability issues with biological systems
- Be able to assess systems through analysis of dimensionless numbers
- Design and evaluate solutions to biological systems using transport and flow properties
