Focus Area 1: Curriculum Development

The Biomedical Engineering field is always changing! Therefore, the Cellular Engineering Laboratory curriculum changes in order to keep up with BME innovations. Dr. Rowlinson updates lab activities to incorporate these changes, whether they are new cell culturing techniques, biomaterial synthesis methods, or modes of analysis. 

Focus Area 2: Engineering Education

The Cellular Engineering Laboratory is a place where both biomedical “wet-lab” work occurs, along with engineering education research. The students enrolled in the course become the test subject. Dr. Rowlinson is interested in how engineering students learn and teaching techniques unique to laboratory classroom environments.
