Students give forty-five minute presentations to their peers each week. Provides a chance for practice and improvement in giving lectures and an opportunity to receive advice from fellow trainees and attending faculty. Gives all members of the program updates on the progress and scientific interests of the students.
This module will cover in depth selected advanced contemporary topics in virology. This year's focus will be the current topics on virus-host cell interactions. Sessions will be based on published primary literature and will be discussions facilitated by the faculty. Students will learn how to critically evaluate the primary literature and to clearly present scientific information. Prerequisite: MICR 8400 and instructor permission.
This course is for visiting research students participating in the BIMS Visiting Research Graduate Trianeeship Program (VRGTP). Students in this course are dual enrolled in their home institution and will participate in research for a minimum of 4 semesters. The research will assist them in completing their degree at their home institution. Non-degree students.
Research in microbiological related disciplines, e.g. cancer, immunology, bacteriology, virology, infectious diseases, cell signaling, nuclear transport, host-pathogen interactions, gene expression, etc.
