BIOS 226: Introduction to Force Spectroscopy

Mini-course. Covers the fundamentals of major single-molecule manipulation methods (optical tweezers, magnetic tweezers, and atomic force microscopy), principles of force measurement signal and noise, and applications to studies of folding, binding, polymer elasticity, and structural transitions in proteins and nucleic acids. Intended for students with no previous exposure to single-molecule manipulation or for beginning practitioners. Lectures and discussion of current literature.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 1 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIOS 256: Sculptural Data Illustrations

Mini-course. Students will use learn make and print 3D models of their data to use as a focal point when describing their project. We will teach the students how to use Autocad and Blender to process existing data sets and students are encouraged to bring their own data. We strive to make wearable models to enable instant mini-lectures any place and anytime.

BIOS 263: Applied Grant-Writing Skills for Fellowships

Graduate students in the Biosciences PhD Programs develop a fellowship proposal (e.g. NIH F31) focusing on required documents: 1-page specific aims as well as research and career development plans. Students establish a writing practice and learn fundamental grant writing skills through guided exercises, including in-class review and focused faculty feedback.

BIOS 266: Mini Proposal Bootcamp

In an intensive 1-day format, students learn the fundamentals for writing competitive fellowships, i.e. NIH NRSA fellowships (F30, F31, F32). Topics include developing specific aims; outlining research and career development plans; and using the review criteria to inform writing. Students develop early drafts of the 1-page specific aims, NIH biosketch, and training plan, and receive feedback from instructor. Students are expected to be in the early stages of writing a fellowship proposal.

BIOS 270: Planetary Health: Socioeconomic & Ecological Links Between Human Health & Earth's Natural Ecosystems

Two of the biggest challenges humanity has to face - promoting human health and halting environmental degradation are are strongly connected and too big to be addressed in an incremental, sector-specific way. Breakthroughs can be achieved through a creative, interdisciplinary approach that fully recognizes the complex nature of links between human health and healthy, functioning ecosystems. Through a series of lectures and case-study discussions with experts from multiple Schools and Departments, students will develop an in-depth understanding of the "Planetary Health" concept, its foundation, goals, priority areas of action and methods of investigation, and the most relevant immediate and long-term challenges.
