Biomedical Applications CPU

Introduction

Students complete a computer simulation based on an ELISA assay.The Biomedical Applications CPU involves the study of cell biology, DNA and genetics, diseases, disease treatments, transgenic technology, regenerative medicine, and several other up-and-coming scientific techniques for improving human health and quality of life.

This course also addresses the ethical issues brought up by the use of various biomedical technologies and encourages students to research and determine which practices are ethical and which are not.

Students will also have hands-on experience with extracting DNA, identifying antibodies and antigens, and separating molecular protein.
