CELL 8450: Effective Science Writing for Grants and Fellowships
Credits: 2
The ability to effectively communicate scientific concepts and justify proposed experiments are essential skills for biomedical researchers. The goals of this course are for trainees to learn and practice effective scientific proposal writing. The course will provide students with extensive peer and faculty mentoring in a workshop format as they each prepare an NIH NRSA-style fellowship application. Prerequisite: BIMS 6000
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.
