BIOS 400: (Hidden) Bias in Bioscience

This mini-course will explore how bias influences science at different levels, from entire fields to individual experiments. Students will learn about how biases in biological research limit scientific productivity and knowledge. Classes will consist of short lectures and student-led discussions using case studies from pain research, plus examples from students? own research fields. The class will prioritize active learning and self-examination, and will include a small final project. The goal of the class is for students to come away with a deeper understanding of scientific bias and use that information to critique their own science and dogmas in their field.

BIOS 401: Phase Separation in Biology

Cellular phase transitions underlie the formation of membrane-less compartments enabling cellular organization. While the existence of membrane-less organelles, such as nucleoli, stress granules, and Cajal bodies had been known for a long time, it had remained largely unclear until recently how they were formed, maintained, and regulated. Recent advances have shown how phase separated condensates underlie many cellular processes such as in immune response and neuronal synaptic signaling, and genome organization.Many of the available literature is difficult to follow as one needs an understanding of polymer physics, cell-biology, and biomolecular interactions to fully grasp phase separation in biology. In this course, we will start from fundamental polymeric understanding of phase separation and build from there towards phase separation of biomacromolcules in-vitro followed by in-vivo condensation and how biomolecular condensates can affect cell-biology
