MICR 8040: Fundamentals in Cancer Biology
Credits: 2
This course examines the molecular basis of cancer and how environmental and hereditary factors cooperate to elicit the transformed phenotype and promote cancer progression. It is team taught by both basic scientists and clinical faculty, providing students with an introduction to clinical presentation, progression, and outcomes; genetic/cellular/tissue drivers of oncogenesis and metastasis; and therapeutic challenges for the treatment of cancer
BIMS 8995: Topical Research: Research in Biomedical Sciences
Credits: 1–12
This course introduces students to biomedical research. Students conduct one or more research projects of limited scope under the direction of faculty and lab members. It is open only to graduate students in Biomedical Sciences (BIMS).
MICR 9995: Research in Microbiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases
Credits: 1–12
Research in microbiological related disciplines, e.g. cancer, immunology, bacteriology, virology, infectious diseases, cell signaling, nuclear transport, host-pathogen interactions, gene expression, etc.
BIMS 9998: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
Preparation for Doctoral Research prior to completion of candidacy examination.
MICR 9999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
For doctoral dissertation, taken under the supervision of a dissertation director.
