Course co-directors:

Karen Oegema, PhD.
Binhai Zheng, Ph.D.



Course description:
This course will provide perspective on selected seminars representing diverse areas of modern biology, including molecular cell biology, genetics, cancer biology, neurobiology and microbiology. The course consists of one selected seminar (see schedule), and one additional meeting (Monday 12:15-2:00 pm) per week. Monday meetings will combine a student-led discussion of the previous week's seminar with an introduction to the upcoming seminar. Invited speakers (primarily senior students and postdoctoral fellows working on a related research topic) will introduce upcoming seminars following a format designed to encourage student participation.
