BIOP 5050: Biophysical Literature
Credits: 1
A journal club. Students present recent research papers in biophysics and/or report on progress of their own research projects. Students learn how to effectively read, critique, and present science research progress.
BIOP 8050: Advanced Methods in Molecular Biophysics: Cellular Biophysics
Credits: 2
This course will introduce students to the theory, principles, and applications of the major techniques in cellular biophysics. Lectures will include practical background on instrumentation and data interpretation. A central focus will be on fluorescent microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. This course will also explore principles and methodologies of mechanobiology (e.g. Optical Tweezers, Atomic Force Microscopy).
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).
BIOP 9995: Biophysics Research
Credits: 3–12
Independent study, other than non-topical research, for course credits.
BIOP 9999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
For doctoral research, taken under the supervision of a dissertation director.
PHAR 9999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
