QSB 217: Lab on a Chip: Developing 3rd World Diagnostics for Global Health

[3 units]

This is the first-ever four campus course between UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, and UC Merced which aims to 1) raise awareness and knowledge about global health issues 2) teach students critical engineering skills such as nano/micro-fabrication 3) enable students to design, build, and test their own diagnostics and 4) develop entrepreneurial skills. Students learn about tuberculosis from leading experts at UCSF and then address the dearth of sensitive diagnostics by designing and testing their own nano/micro-systems. Taught at UC Merced with tele-conferencing to the other campuses and two field trips. Funded in part by QB3.

Normal Letter Grade only. Laboratory included. Cross-Listed with BEST 217 .
