STEMREM 83Q: The Stem Cell: Biological, Social, and Practical Aspects of Stem Cell Research

Preference to sophomores. Ethical, legal, social, and economic dimensions of stem cell research such as the discovery of human embryonic stem cells and the international landscape of public policy. How stem cells work, their role in the upkeep of the human body, and current and future uses in medicine. Issues at the intersection of science and society such as human-animal hybrids, notions of justice in intellectual property law, distribution of health care, and the major ethical frameworks defining the debate. Prerequisite: AP Biology
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

STEMREM 199: Undergraduate Research

Students undertake investigations sponsored by individual faculty members. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-18 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

STEMREM 200: Stem Cell Intensive

Open to first year Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine graduate students or consent of Instructor. Hands-on, five-day immersion to learn basic methods of tissue culture, mouse embryo fibroblast (MEF) preparation, embryonic stem and induced pluripotent stem (ES/iPS) cell culture, differentiation, DNA isolation, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), sequencing, and basic microscopy.
Terms: Aut, Spr | Units: 1 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

STEMREM 201A: Stem Cells and Human Development: From Embryo to Cell Lineage Determination

For graduate, undergraduate and medical students. Offers didactic lectures focused on human developmental biology, derivation of pluripotent stem cells, cell sorting, genomics, bioinformatics, imaging and other related topics. Provides the educational foundation and social group building within each first-year class of STEMREM graduate students. Students enrolling for 1 unit attend all lectures; students enrolling for 2 units attend all lectures and discussion sections.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1-3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

STEMREM 201B: Stem Cells and Human Development Laboratory

Targeted enrollment to first year graduate students or any other student who wishes to improve their ability to design, perform, analyze, and communicate results from laboratory based experiments. Content early in the quarter is focused on how to design an experimental aim and approach. Practical examples are drawn from the participating students¿ fall-quarter research rotations (or current research projects). In mid-quarter, the focus shifts from how to design the experiment to ¿how to update the PI on this week¿s experimental progress¿ and the weekly meeting emulates a typical lab meeting with brief presentations of experimental progress from each student. Focus shifts at the end of the quarter to strategies for concise presentation of data and conclusions drawn from experimental results. Provides hands-on skills to maximize both the student¿s experience during a research rotation and improve communication skills between student and mentor (skills that are valuable to any student at any stage of their research career). SCBRM students must take concurrently with STEMREM 201A
Terms: Aut | Units: 1 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

STEMREM 202: Stem Cells and Translational Medicine

For graduate, undergraduate and medical students. Focus is on fundamentals of stem cell biology and regenerative Medicine. Topics include exploration of the well-studied system of hematopoiesis, molecular pathways of pluripotency and tissue-specific stem cells and ends with coverage of aging as related to stem cell dynamics. Features include lectures on the basic science of each topic, followed by clinical applications in order to show the mechanisms and methods to translate findings to therapeutic applications, culminated with construction of a research proposal or business plan in an area of interest, to be further explored in STEMREM 203. Students enrolling for 3 units submit four of seven problem-sets; students enrolling for 4 units submit five of seven problem-sets; students enrolling for 5 units turn in seven of seven problem-sets.
Terms: Win | Units: 3-5 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Palmer, T. (PI)

STEMREM 203: Stem Cells Immersion: Applications in Medicine, Business and Law

For graduate and medical students. Provides the clinical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology or business immersion necessary to allow insight into the world of medicine from multiple vantage points, setting the stage for students to translate research successfully beyond the academic sphere and gain the necessary knowledge to move their research proposal/business plan forward (from STEMREM 202). Prerequisites: STEMREM 201A and STEMREM 202.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Palmer, T. (PI)

STEMREM 250: Regenerative Medicine Seminar Series

For graduate, medical and undergraduate students. A forum for Stanford researchers to meet, hear about what is going on in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford, and spark collaborations. Topics include all areas of regenerative medicine, broadly defined, ranging from fundamental biological principles and basic science advances to novel applications in biotechnology, stem cell biology, and human disease.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Palmer, T. (PI)

STEMREM 280: Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine Journal Club

For graduate, medical and undergraduate students. Review of current literature in both basic and translational medicine as it relates to stem cell biology and/or regenerative medicine in a seminar format consisting of both faculty and student presentations. Includes discussions led by faculty experts in the area covered for that particular session. Topics may range widely, depending on the available literature and students' interests. Students are expected to review the chosen article before class presentations and participate in discussion. Discussion includes methodology and statistical analysis of each study and its relevance to stem cell biology and/or regenerative medicine.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 2 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Palmer, T. (PI)

STEMREM 281: Landmark Papers in Immunology and Stem Cell Biology: How to Pose Experimental Questions

Focus on deciphering article titles to accurately assess the biological question being asked, and what experiment design might best approach the question, encouraging students to become experimentalists, not memorizers, of information presented by authors. Topics include implications of paper questions for the field, deciphering paper titles, hypothesizing research questions.
Terms: Win | Units: 2 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
