Four Course sequence Principles of the Biomedical Sciences Human Body Systems Medical Interventions Biomedical Innovation/Capstone Course Course #1:Principles of the Biomedical Sciences (PBS) The study of human medicine, research processes & an introduction to bioinformatics. Investigation of the human body systems and
various health conditions including: heart disease, diabetes, sickle-cell disease, hyper-cholesterolemia, and infectious diseases. PBS Topics: Literary research skills Human body systems Basic chemistry Structure and function of DNA Bioinformatics
Protein structure Causes of infectious diseases Grant proposals PBS Activity Example from Unit 4 in the PBS curriculum: Students learn about chromosomes and DNA by making a chromosome spread so they can observe chromosomes in a cell PBS Activity
Example from Unit 4 in the PBS curriculum: students use a computer simulation to view how protein shape is affected by its environment and by its component parts Course #2: Human Body Systems (HBS) Study of basic human physiology, especially in relationship to human health. Central theme: how the body systems work together to maintain internal balance & good health.
Students use data acquisition software to monitor body functions & use the Anatomy with Clay Manikens to study body structure. HBS Topics: Relationship between structure and function Maintenance of health Defense against disease Communication within the body and with the outside world
Movement of the body and of substances around the body Energy distribution and processing HBS Activity Example from HBS curriculum: This is the Maniken from Anatomy in Clay used throughout the Human
Body Systems course for students to build body systems and parts using clay HBS Activity Example from Unit 1 in the HBS curriculum: Students take measurements of bones to determine if a bone is from a man or a
woman and to determine that persons ethnicity. Course #3: Medical Interventions (MI) Investigation of various medical interventions that extend and improve the quality of life including: diagnostics, surgery, bionanotechnology, pharmacology, prosthetics, rehabilitation, & life style choices. Medical Interventions
Students investigate the variety of interventions involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease as they follow the lives of a fictitious family. MI Activity Example from Unit 4. Students build and use a mock laparoscopic surgery trainer box. MI Topics: Molecular biology & genetic engineering
Design process for pharmaceuticals and medical devices Medical imaging, including x-rays, CT scans, & MRI scans Disease detection & prevention Rehabilitation after disease or injury Medical interventions of the future Course #4: Biomedical Innovation
Capstone Course: students will apply their knowledge and skills to solve problems related to the biomedical sciences They may work with a mentor or advisor from a university, hospital, physicians office, or industry as they complete their research and problem-solution process. Students will present their findings and results in a symposium style format to an audience which may include representatives from the local healthcare or business community or the schools PLTW partnership team
Biomedical Innovation Course Benefits: Progressively challenging problems Flexible design Apply knowledge and skills learned in all previous courses Multiple presentations Design innovative solutions for the health challenges of the 21st century Opportunity to work with mentor(s)
BI Topics Design of Effective Emergency Room Exploring Human Physiology Design of a Medical Innovation Investigating Water Contamination Combating a Public Health Issue Molecular Biology in Action (Optional) Forensic Autopsy (Optional) Independent Project (Optional)
