BENG 220: Physical Bases of Biomedical Systems

Instructor Information

Section Information

Introduces the physical basis of biomedical systems and signals. Demonstrates basic concepts of systems and signals theory, and shows their derivation from the biophysical concepts such as mechanics, fluid mechanics, pharmacokinetics and molecular biophysics which underlie the signals in living systems. Aims at providing the student with the mathematical and physical understanding to quantitatively describe biological systems.
