Biotransport involving mass transfer (diffusive or convective) with and without associated reaction processes is an integral part of biomedical engineering. It is central in the analysis of biological systems at the cellular and organ level as well as for the design of bioartificial organs. The focus of this presentation will be the development of the module mass transfer and reaction processes in physiological systems and biomedical devices - in the core Engineering Science III (ESIII) - Biomedical Dynamics and Applications (BMED8102) course within the Biomedical Engineering (BME) PhD curriculum. Specifically, demonstrating the way in which mass transfer fundamentals are taught in the context of and primarily through biological and biomedical engineering examples, particularly, including relevant research examples from the biomedical engineering literature. In this way, the students gain a deeper appreciation for the underlying mass transfer principles in the relevant literature. The goal is for the students to be able to identify these underlying principles and apply them themselves.
