From the Back Cover:

Teaches the fundamentals of mass transport and chemical reaction with a unique approach emphasizing engineering principles in a biomedical environment

The impact of engineering on medicine and biology has grown significantly. Not only has this resulted in an impressive world-wide increase in educational biomedical engineering programs, but many traditional chemical and agricultural engineering departments have changed their names to include "bio-" recognizing the importance of biomedical engineering research and development to human welfare and the global economy.

Biomedical Mass Transport and Chemical Reaction is designed for students whose educational emphasis involves physicochemical aspects of biomedical systems. A major objective of this textbook is to integrate engineering principles with relevant biomedical applications at the cellular, tissue, organ, and whole-body levels.  These applications incorporate basic as well as more sophisticated and complex concepts, which are appropriate for graduate as well as advanced undergraduate engineering students.

Divided into seven parts Biomedical Mass Transport and Chemical Reaction features:

  • Basic biological and modelling concepts
  • An overview of the thermodynamics that relate to interfacial, membrane and chemical reaction equilibria
  • Rate equations to analyze mass diffusion and chemical reactions
  • Basic transport models in fluids and membranes
  • Multi-dimensional transport of molecules and cell population dynamics
  • Compartment models and analyses
  • Detailed models related to treatment of tissue and organ dysfunction, delivery and distribution of drugs, and interpretation of biomedical measurements

The approach is unique in that it is organized by engineering principles rather than by specific types of applications.  Learning is reinforced with diverse example problems of increasing complexity.  This empowers students with the self-confidence necessary to successfully tackle new problems throughout their careers.
