Participants will focus on integrating physiology applications by using biomedical engineering to visualize the relationships between structure and function of the cardiovascular system. Participants will have the opportunity to brainstorm and plan how to prepare working models of the heart. Once the models have been approved, designed, engineered, and built, participants will be able to model different pathological conditions in their models such as atherosclerosis. Participants will reflect upon the biophysical and biochemical basis of their creations. Through model-building and testing, participants will trouble shoot their inventions, later reflecting upon what changes were made to their original design and how they can best incorporate the lesson into their pedagogy.
