1 - 6 of 6 results for: BIOS ; Currently searching autumn courses. You can expand your search to include all quarters

BIOS 200: Foundations in Experimental Biology

This course is divided into two 3-week cycles. During the first cycle, students will be developing a 2-page original research proposal, which may be used for NSF or other fellowship applications. In the second cycle, students will work in small teams and will be mentored by faculty to develop an original research project for oral presentation. Skills emphasized include: 1) reading for breadth and depth; 2) developing compelling, creative arguments; 3) communicating with the spoken and written word; 4) working in teams. Important features of the course include peer assessment, interactive joint classes, and substantial face-to-face discussion with faculty drawn from across the Biosciences programs. Shortened autumn quarter class; class meets during weeks 1 through 8 of the quarter.

BIOS 250: Preparation and Practice: Interdisciplinary Drug Discovery

Focuses on decision making in science, with particular attention to skills for identifying when to solicit interdisciplinary input, and how to guide such discussions to productive endpoints. Uses case studies based on Novartis projects to teach ways to leverage interdisciplinary knowledge, effectively communicate across disciplines, and drive teams to decision points. Two-day workshop presented by Novartis scientists who lead participants through these real life examples of interactive teams within pharma solving problems through collaborative decision making. Participants develop collaborative decision making skills highlighted through group exercises.

BIOS 271: Writing Graduate Research Fellowships

Initial sessions focus on the basics of grantsmanship, review criteria (i.e. intellectual merit and broader impact), and required materials, with particular focus on the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Students draft a 2-page research proposal and 3-page personal, relevant background and future goals statement. During small group peer review sessions, students receive detailed feedback to improve the clarity of their writing.
