Our research group in University of Colorado Boulder centers on cutting-edge micro/nano systems for various applications in biomedicine, particularly in cell manipulation, cell membrane disruption and repair, intracellular delivery and subcellular delivery. Our platform will benefit various fields in fundamental cell studies, biochemistry, medical diagnosis, and therapeutics. We aim to develop cutting-edge tools and technologies 1) for intracellular delivery of hard-to-transfer cells such as immune cells, and subcellular drug delivery, such as organelles; 2) investigate cell membrane disruption and recovery under varies of stimulation; 3) explore cell mechanics and mechanical biomarkers; 4) for protein analysis; and 5) for human healthcare, point-of-care disease diagnostics, and medical therapeutics.

MCEN 3021 - Fluid Mechanics
Examines fundamentals of fluid flow with application to engineering problems. Topics covered include fluid statics and kinematics, Bernoulli equations, laminar and turbulent viscous boundary layers, laminar and turbulent pipe flow, and conservation equations for mass, momentum and energy. Same as CHEN 3200 and CVEN 3313.
MCEN 4085 - Mechanical Engineering Design Project 2
Second part of a two-course capstone design experience in mechanical engineering. Includes refinement of prototype, design optimization, fabrication, testing, and evaluation. Students orally present the final design and prepare a written report and operation manual for the product. GEEN-BS and GEEN-BSEPL students are not required to complete MCEN 4026.
MCEN 4228 - Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering
Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
Subject matter to be selected from topics of current interest. May be repeated up to 15 credit hours. Same as MCEN 5228.
