Tissue engineering

  1. Jun 1, 2009 #1
    I'm an undergraduate physics major right now but I may go for biophysics because I am very interested in tissue engineering, specifically in-vitro meat production. I may go to graduate school for bioengineering and I was wondering a few things:
    -What do I absolutely need to learn? Including which math and physics courses. I have no problem self studying some stuff.
    -What schools have graduate programs in the areas of muscle tissue or in-vitro meat development?

    I'm a biochemistry major/math minor and I've been looking into bioengineering grad school as well... for non-engineering undergrads, most grad schools recommend these math courses:

    Vectors & Matrices
    Ordinary Differential Equations
    Discrete Mathematics
    Linear Algebra

    it's helpful to browse different grad school web pages, they usually have a lot of information on current projects and typical entrance requirements....

    I would really recommend taking a few biology and/or physiology classes, and working in a lab that does cell culture. A molecular biology class wouldn't hurt, either.
