Researchers have come a long way in developing therapies for chronic disease but a gap remains between current solutions and the ability to address the disease in full. This course provides an overview to the underlying biology of many of these diseases and how they may connect to each other. A "think outside of the box" approach to drug discovery is needed to bridge such a gap in solutions, and this course teaches the building blocks for that approach. Could Legoland provide the answer? This is a guest lecture series with original contributions from prominent thought leaders in academia and industry. Interaction between students and guest lecturers is expected. Students with a major, minor or coterm in Biology: 109A/209A or 109B/209B may count toward degree program but not both.

Students analyze cutting edge science, develop a logical framework for evaluating evidence and models, and enhance their ability to design original research through exposure to experimental tools and strategies. The class runs in parallel with the Frontiers in Biological Research seminar series. Students and faculty meet on the Tuesday preceding each seminar to discuss a landmark paper in the speaker's field of research. Following the Wednesday seminar, students meet briefly with the speaker for a free-range discussion which can include insights into the speakers' paths into science and how they pick scientific problems.

For Ph.D. students. Taught from the current literature on cell structure, function, and dynamics. Topics include complex cell phenomena such as cell division, apoptosis, signaling, compartmentalization, transport and trafficking, motility and adhesion, and differentiation. Weekly reading of current papers from the primary literature. Advanced undergraduates may participate with the permission of the Course Director.

¿Connections¿ aims to welcome first-year students into the Biochemistry Department by fostering connections between you as a scientist and you as an individual with the broader communities of the department, Stanford, and local, national and international communities. The students, staff and faculty who have organized Connections believe that a sense of oneself and of belonging are foundations for doing transformative science and for doing so with purpose and wellness. We strive not just to be scientists but rather citizen-scientists, with broad and manifold aspirations for ourselves and those around us. The sessions planned, in addition to providing practical information, are aimed at continuing your exploration of your values and goals and placing that exploration in context of the multiple communities that you can embrace and that will embrace you. They will do so in ways that are inclusive to all individuals, thereby empowering individuals to be whoever they are, strengthening community, and promoting the ongoing causes of social and societal fairness and justice.
