Synopsis:

Transport processes are underlying all functions of living organisms. Mechanisms by which these processes take place, and models that describe them, are the subjects of this course. From the principles of thermo-dynamics and the organization of the cell, the transports will be described in terms of their molecular structure, their function and features, and their integration into tissues and organs. The courses will be of interest to students who wish to understand and interpret transport experiments in biological systems and to predict performance or behaviour from transport data. Each lecture will provide engineering problems to solve (exercises), some lectures will be illustrated by demonstrations.

Requirements:

Requirements for assessment:

- resolved all given separate tasks.

Exam requirements:

- obtained assessment,

- only the written exam contains some questions QCM,

interpretation of the graph, the solution (calculation) of the practical problem.

Evaluation (grading) of the written exam according to the ECTS grading scale at CTU.
