STEMREM 202: Stem Cells and Translational Medicine

For graduate, undergraduate and medical students. Focus is on the fundamentals of stem cell biology and stem cell applications in basic research and translational 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. Lectures are topically paired to cover the basic science of each topic, followed by clinical applications within each field of study. Students will use lecture and literature content to construct a research proposal based on biological or clinical concepts learned during the quarter.
Terms: Win | Units: 1-3 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 3 units total)

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

For graduate and medical students enrolled in the SCBRM PhD program or other students by permission from the Instructor. Career-development immersions are custom designed by the student and advisor to provide clinical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology or business insights into the world of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine from multiple vantage points. The Immersion sets the stage for students to explore research and translation beyond the academic sphere and gain the necessary knowledge to move their career forward when completing the PhD.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 3
Instructors: ; Palmer, T. (PI)

STEMREM 205: Bioinformatics for Stem Cell and Cancer Biology

For graduate and medical students. High-throughput technologies and data science are essential tools in modern stem cell biology and cancer research. Students will gain practical exposure to bioinformatics concepts and techniques required to address biological questions within these research areas. The beginning of the quarter is focused on foundational principles underlying bioinformatics and genomics. Focus for the remainder of the quarter is on direct, hands-on experience with applications to common research problems. Topics include analysis of bulk and single-cell sequencing data, single gene to whole-genome analysis, machine learning, and data visualization. Intended for biology students without a background in computer science, or for students in a quantitative discipline interested in gaining exposure to key challenges in stem cell and cancer genomics. Basic programming experience is recommended but not required.
Terms: Win | Units: 2 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 4 units total)
Instructors: ; Newman, A. (PI)

STEMREM 223: Biology and Disease of Hematopoiesis (IMMUNOL 223)

Hematopoiesis is the formation, development, and differentiation of blood cells. Lecture and journal club. Topics will include definitive and adult hematopoiesis, myeloid and lymphoid development, hematopoietic diseases, stem cell niche, bone marrow transplant, and methods and models used to study hematopoiesis. For upper level undergraduates or graduate students. Pre-requisite for undergraduates: Biology or Human Biology core, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 3

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 6 times (up to 6 units total)
Instructors: ; Wernig, M. (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 | Units: 1 | Repeatable 6 times (up to 12 units total)
Instructors: ; Wernig, M. (PI)

STEMREM 370: Medical Scholars Research

Provides an opportunity for student and faculty interaction, as well as academic credit and financial support, to medical students who undertake original research. Enrollment is limited to students with approved projects.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 4-18 | Repeatable for credit
