BIOL 1970A - Stem Cell Biology
Senior seminar course will provide an interactive forum by which up to twenty seniors (and qualified juniors with permission) will explore the biology of stem cells from their humble beginnings in the embryo to their potential use in regenerative medicine. The potency and regulation of embryonic and adult stem cell populations derived from diverse organisms will be contrasted with laboratory-derived human stem-like cells for biomedical applications. Critical reading of classical and modern literature in the field of stem cell biology will form the basis of student-led presentations, papers and ethical forums. Expected: biochemistry, genetics and/or cell biology. Instructor permission; 20 students.
