BIOM 272A and 274A: Seminars in Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics
Karen Oegema, PhD.
Binhai Zheng, Ph.D.
This course will provide perspective on selected seminars representing diverse areas of modern biomedical sciences, including molecular cell biology, genetics/genomics, developmental biology and neurobiology. The course consists of one selected seminar on campus and one additional meeting (Friday 11:00-1:00 pm, CMME 2047) per week. The Friday meetings will combine a student-led discussion of the previous week's seminar (post-session) with an introduction to the upcoming seminar by a guest lecturer (pre-session). The guest lecturer (a senior student, postdoctoral fellow or faculty member from the local research community who works on a related research topic) will introduce the upcoming seminar following a format designed to encourage student participation.
Who may register:
BMS students who are interested in current topics in MCB and Genetics. Priority will be given to 1st year students. For questions on registration, please contact Gina Butcher, email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 534-1823.
