Instructional Laboratories of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering of Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University is located in the Whitaker Building at the Georgia Tech campus. Several research courses are supported by the Instructional Laboratories including Quantitative Engineering Physiology I & II, Cellular and Tissue Engineering courses. Resources and support are provided for other graduate and undergraduate courses (for details, see courses section). The Laboratories, in addition to several biosafety cabinets and CO2 incubators, also house state of the art instrumentation including Flow cytometers, QuantStudio Real Time PCR system, QIAcube, Nanodrop, fluorescent and phase contrast microscopes with live cell imaging capabilities, IR imager for Western analysis, plate readers, hypoxia incubator, electrospinning equipment and set up for nanoparticle and microparticle fabrication. Undergraduate as well as graduate students use the instrumentation and resources for their research. A major focus of the research is student-initiated research projects involving engineered strategies to tackle real world medical problems by performing hands-on experimentation that generate solutions and create value for the biomedical field.
