Brief Course Description
Basic Biomedical Sciences (BBS-G501/G503)
Five Lectures per week covering macromolecules, DNA replication, gene expression, genetics, bioenergetics and intermediary metabolism, immunology, carcinogenesis, development, drug actions, and cell structure.
Special Topics in Biomedical Sciences (BBS-G502/G504)
Two two-hour discussion sessions per week involving critically reading journal articles, data analysis and research techniques. Topics accompany presentations in the lecture course (BBS-G501/G503).
Introduction to Basic Biomedical research (BBS-G595/G596)
The first 5 weeks of the Fall semester has each Department present their graduate program, requirements, faculty and research from 1-5 PM each day. After the introductory 5 weeks, students select five faculty members for 5 week research rotations. Rotations must be selected from at least three departments.
Basic Biomedical Science Colloquium (BBS-G597/G598)
In the Fall semester, selected faculty will present their research. Students must complete a written report of the presentation. During the Spring semester, students present a journal article
A new one semester long course covering the major means of investigation of cell injury, death, growth and disease mechanisms. Emphasis is on molecular pathology.
Special Topics in Molecular Pathobiology (PT-G693)
Selected discussion of selected areas such as carcinogenesis and immunopathology.
Molecular Pathology Seminar (PT-G692)
One hour presentations of current journal articles by students and faculty.
Research Colloqium (PT-691)
Beginning in the second year, students present their research to the Department Faculty once per year.
Immunology pertaining to human diseases with an emphasis on animal models.
