ENSC S-107: Acceptance and Resistance to Innovation

Semester: 

Summer

Offered: 

2019
This course discusses the factors that influence societal acceptance of innovations. In order for an innovation to have impact, and in order for an entrepreneur to be successful, the innovation must gain acceptance within the broader society. Why are novel technologies readily accepted in some communities, yet resisted in other communities? Students learn through case studies of technologies such as genetically modified foods, solar energy, nuclear power, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and virtual reality. Many case studies are inspired by, but not limited to,... Read more about ENSC S-107: Acceptance and Resistance to Innovation

ENSC E-132: Tissue Engineering for Clinical Applications

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2019
Tissue engineering is now recognized as a way to lessen the global disease burden: novel methods for pancreatic islet regeneration can address diabetes; autologous cells for heart muscle regeneration can address coronary artery disease; and nerve regeneration technologies can be used to treat stroke. This course describes strategies of tissue engineering, and focuses on the diseases tissue engineering can address. Each lecture identifies a specific disease (coronary artery disease, stroke, diabetes) and describes tissue-engineered scaffolds that can alleviate the disease. Students learn the...

ENSC S-135: Biochemical Engineering and Synthetic Life

Semester: 

Summer

Offered: 

2018
Biochemical engineering harnesses living cells as miniature chemical reactors, enabling the production of designer molecules ranging from pharmaceuticals to plastics to biofuels. Live cells possess unique capabilities to manufacture complex chemical entities, yet living cells also introduce unique challenges and tradeoffs. This course introduces students to the fundamentals of biochemical engineering, including its biological underpinnings, the flow of genetic information within biological systems, the building blocks of living cells, and cellular pathways and control mechanisms. The course... Read more about ENSC S-135: Biochemical Engineering and Synthetic Life
