NSUR 81N: Mitochondrial Transport and Function in Neuronal Health and Death

As our population continues to age, age-dependent neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and ALS are becoming more prevalent and thus pose a daunting danger to public health nationwide. Effective treatments are desperately needed, however, we still know very little about how neurons die in those diseases. One organelle that is especially important to neuronal health is mitochondria, the power plants for the cell. In this IntroSem, we will learn how neurons employ molecular machinery to regulate, transport, and distribute mitochondria, and importantly, how these fundamental regulations are compromised in neurological disorders. A hands-on laboratory section is available for students who are interested in learning imaging mitochondrial transport in live cells using confocal microscopy. The laboratory section is located at the beautiful Arastradero campus, which provides a unique opportunities for first-year students to explore Stanford campuses and adjacent areas.Prerequisites: High school biology.

NSUR 249: Experimental Immersion in Neuroscience (STATS 249)

This course provides students from technical backgrounds (e.g., physics, applied physics, electrical or chemical engineering, bioengineering, computer science, statistics) the opportunity to learn how they can apply their expertise to advancing experimental research in the neurosciences. Students will visit one neuroscience lab per week to watch experiments, understand the technical apparatus and animal models being used, discuss the questions being addressed, and interact with students and others conducting the research. This course is strongly encouraged for students who wish to apply to the NeuroTech graduate training program.

NSUR 304A: Neurosurgery Clerkship

Open to visitors. An advanced clerkship designed to actively engage the student in the diagnosis, operative treatment, and post-operative care of patients suffering from a wide variety of neurosurgical problems including tumors of the brain and spine, cerebrovascular abnormalities, infection, trauma, and congenital abnormalities of the central and peripheral nervous system. Subintern students assume a high level of responsibility, essentially functioning at the level of a first-year resident (intern), managing complex, acutely ill patients, scrubbing in on cases in the operating room, and functioning as an accountable team member. Among the responsibilities are: (1) primary work-ups of new patients; (2) writing orders, managing patients in conjunction with a resident or attending, and conducting appropriate intern-level procedures; (3) taking night call; (4) writing notes and dictating summaries as assigned by the supervising resident(s). Please note: Visiting students must obtain approval from the Department prior to applying for this clerkship. Email requests to Shanna Selsor at selsor@stanford.edu along with your CV, cover letter, at least 1 letter of recommendation. Prereq: MED 208 or INDE 206. Periods Avail: 1-5 & 12, full-time for four weeks. 5 students per period. Reporting Instructions: Where: Meet neurosurgery residents at D2 Pacs Conference Room at 6:00 am. nUnits: 6.

NSUR 304B: Neurosurgery Clerkship

Open to visitors. Acquaints students with the diagnosis, operative treatment, and postoperative care of patients suffering injuries to or diseases of the central or peripheral nervous system. Students work closely with faculty and the resident staff at the PAVAMC, evaluating patients in the outpatient clinic and in the hospital. The student participates in diagnostic procedures, observes during surgery, and participates in postoperative care. The PAVAMC rotation involves neither pediatric nor trauma cases. and the amount of acute trauma is minimal. There will be teaching and work rounds, tutorial sessions, and weekly teaching conferences at Stanford University Medical Center, focused on neurosurgery, neurology and neuroradiology. A four-week full-time clerkship is recommended for students considering neurosurgery as a career. Prereq: MED 208 or INDE 206. Periods Avail: 1-12, full-time for four weeks. 1 student per period. Reporting Instructions: Where: PAVAMC, Building 100, Third floor, surgical service offices, B3-129; Time: 8:00 am. Units: 6. Call Code: 1. Director: Stephen Skirboll, M.D. Other Faculty: S. Skirboll, H. Yu. Coord: Hansni Prasad (650-493-5000 x65709) Building 100, Third floor, B3 Surgical service offices.(PAVAMC)

NSUR 304C: Neurosurgery Clerkship

Open to visitors. Neurosurgery at SCVMC offers the student to fully participate in all areas of the service. One third year neurosurgery resident help run the service, which therefore allows greater exposure and time for the student with patients and the neurosurgical faculty. We usually have one or two medical students at a time and the students work closely with all members of the team, including the attending. The student is typically exposed to a wide spectrum of neurosurgical conditions, especially brain and spine trauma, brain tumors, cerebrovascular conditions and degenerative spine disease. During their clerkships, students are very much a member of the team and participate actively on the ward, clinic and OR. All faculty lead research projects at SCVMC and Stanford. Students are welcome to participate in these but most research projects will require longer term commitment beyond the one month clinical clerkship. Other educational activities include weekly neuroscience grand rounds, neuroradiology conference and tumor board. The advanced and diverse pathology seen and the often challenging patient population cared for at SCVMC compliments that experienced at SUMC. We welcome visiting students and early planning for this clerkship is recommended. Prereq: MED 208 or INDE 206. Periods Avail: 1-12, full-time for four weeks. 1-2 students per period. Reporting Instructions: Where: SCVMC, Trauma ICU, 2nd floor main building; Time: 7:00 am. Units: 6. Call Code: 0. Director: Harminder Singh, M.D., FACS, FAANS. Other Faculty: T. Cage, M. Lee, J. Menon. Coord: Tanya Johnson (408-885-6067), Valley Specialty Center, Room 3Q169), SCVMC. (SCVMC)
