Can we create super humans using genome editing technology? Should we look forward to having artificial humans in the near future? Can we finally find the drug to treat Alzheimer’s disease? Uncover the answers to these and other key scientific questions, study individual cells and the process of fabricating actual living tissues, and examine applications of bioengineering in everyday life.
Who should take this course?
This course is ideal if you’re interested in biomedical engineering, regenerative medicine, biology, genome science and technology, or if you’re interested in making bio-products that could save people’s lives.
