43021 Advanced Biomedical Engineering Studio A

12cp; 8hpw, on campus, weekly
Requisite(s): (41162 Fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering Studio A AND 41163 Fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering Studio B AND (42026 Biomedical Polymers OR 26101 Health Economics and Evaluation))



This advanced studio subject introduces students to single-cell sequencing, an emerging area of biomedical engineering research. The studio focuses on how to use single-cell sequencing as a technology for cancer research. The studio involves learning key skills in the laboratory to undertake single-cell sequencing, and bioinformatics analysis of existing datasets in cancer. Students can select one studio project using single-cell sequencing.

Each project uses single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) as a tool for cancer research. There are three options for each team to choose from:

  1. Deciphering mechanisms of drug resistance in neuroblastoma
  2. Understanding the influence of cell types in the tumour microenvironment in non-small cell lung cancer
  3. Evaluating mechanisms of metastasis in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
