CELL 8301: Advanced Topics in Cell Biology
Credits: 2
his module will cover topics not discussed in the Core Course and provide depth to topics covered in less detail. These will include, but are not limited to membrane biogenesis and trafficking, cytoskeleton dynamics and regulation, cell adhesion and motility, cell polarity, cell cycle control and regulation. The course will be primarily literature-based and emphasis will be placed on model systems, experimental design and data interpretation. Prerequisite: BIMS 6000
NESC 9010: Molecular Neuroscience
Credits: 2
This course will provide the strong foundation in signal transduction in developing neurons. Upon completion of this course, students will understand signal transduction in neural development and beyond. This will be a combination of lecture and discussion of classic and contemporary literature.
