BIOE 4490 - Drug Delivery

3 Credits (3 Contact Hours)
Introduces drug design, development and delivery in the context of creating biomaterial-based prodrugs and applying pharmaceutical therapies in tissue engineering/regenerative medicine. This course covers the relationship between drug physics-chemical properties and pharmacokinetics (ADME: Absorption, Metabolism, Distribution and Elimination)/pharmacodynamics (mechanism of drug interaction). Methods are described to improve the therapeutic efficacy and reduce the toxicity of drugs for the efficient treatment of diseases and regeneration of tissue/organs. This course also provides students with an understanding of the principles, strategies and biomaterials used in controlled delivery systems, targeted delivery systems and tissue engineering. Preq: BIOE 3020 .

This 4000-level course has a 6000-level counterpart. Students should refer to the Graduate Catalog for the 6000-level description and requirements.
