Introduction to BioMEMS

Welcome instructors, and thanks for deciding to use my textbook!

I have put together this website to facilitate interaction between the growing number of instructors that are using my textbook.

Below and above you will find the links to the PowerPoints of the lectures. They are password-protected, you should have received the username and password from me already (if not, please email me).

Please do NOT share the password with your students, as this website is also used to post the solutions to the problem sets. However, you are welcome to distribute the PowerPoints to them via email or a restricted-access website.

Purchase (~$79 hardcover; ~$46 Kindle) or Kindle-rent (~$10/mo) through Amazon here.

The field has been waiting for a true textbook that provides a practical, historical, authoritative and comprehensive introduction to bioMEMS. It has finally arrived, courtesy of Albert Folch, complete with PowerPoint lectures and thoughtful homework questions. I highly recommend it.

Introduction to BioMEMS is a well-written textbook for advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate level courses in biological applications of micro-electro-mechanical systems and lab-on-a-chip devices. [...] The extensive use of color figures, the non-extensive use of equations, and a thorough glossary of terms will make this textbook ideal for an interdisciplinary introductory bioengineering course.
