43021 Advanced Biomedical Engineering Studio A12cp; 9hpw, 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 emerging area of biomedical engineering research. Students select one studio project from the following two research project streams i) Single Cell Sequencing in Cancer and ii)
Lateral Flow Assay Stream. The first project focuses on how to use single-cell sequencing as a technology for cancer research. It involves learning key skills in the laboratory to undertake single-cell sequencing, and bioinformatics analysis of existing datasets in cancer. In the second project, students learn how to about fabrication and have the opportunity to build their own rapid diagnostic lateral flow assay (LFA), which is the same technology as the COVID-19 rapid antigen test (RAT). Students develop comprehensive skills including nanoparticle conjugation, LFA fabrication, 3D printing and laser cutting
At the completion of this subject, students have developed skills in project design, problem solving, stakeholder analysis and acquired various technical skills associated with emerging biomedical engineering areas.
Autumn session, City campus
