PHRMACOL 591 — Special Topics in Signal Transduction
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Rui,Liangyou; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 2

A literature based discussion course that will cover both seminal discoveries in signal transduction as well as recent advances in the field. The course will meet once per week for two hours, throughout the semester. Two research papers will be discussed each week. Grading will be based on short weekly problem sets and a presentation by each student. Prior course work in biochemistry and cell biology is strongly encouraged.

Advisory Prerequisite: Course in Biochemistry and signal transduction or Instructor permission

PHRMACOL 630 — Genetics Short Course
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Schwartz,Jessica; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 1
Other: Minicourse

Each semester the CMB Program offers a "Short Course" entitled Advanced Topics in Molecular Biology. The course is a mini-symposium composed of a series of 4-5 presentations over several weeks on a specific thematic topic. The topic and speakers are selected by CMB student volunteers. Leading investigators in the field are invited by students to visit the University as symposium speakers. These courses enable students to obtain intensive exposure to high-profile research areas, and to have opportunities to interact with the speakers in multiple contexts, including formal discussions, informal meals, chalk talks, and one-to-one meetings (particularly if they are hosting the speaker). Such interactions have helped some senior CMB students find excellent postdoctoral labs.

The sessions are open to the University community, and attract large audiences who attend for updates on state-of-the-art research.

Advisory Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
