BIOS 202: Understanding Kinetics for Biologists and Biology

Students in the biological and chemical sciences are typically exposed to the kinetic and thermodynamic formalisms that describe rate and equilibrium processes, but rarely develop an intuition that allows them to use the material creatively in their own research. This Mini-course is designed to help each student begin to develop this intuition and an ability to evaluate the literature and their own data in terms of kinetic and thermodynamic models. This will be achieved through a combination of interactive lectures, in-class problem-solving, and a tutorial problem set that can be completed individually or in groups.

BIOS 281: Career Explorations Opportunities: Transitioning to your Career Choice

The Career Exploration Opportunities (CEO) program highlights the skills necessary to make significant contributions to scientific research, business, policy, communication, and more. This course offers tools and exercises to help late-stage trainees clarify academic and professional priorities. Trainees will be empowered to take charge of their chosen career of choice options through hands-on experiences, which fit their skills, interests, and values.Throughout this course, trainees will receive ongoing support from mentors and employers in their desired field as they develop a job search plan, create tailored resumes/cvs, and cover letters, become more confident in their networking, interviewing, and negotiation skills, and choose the experiential learning options necessary to transition to the next phase of their professional development.

BIOS 283: Dendritic Cells and Other Myeloid Cells: function and analytical tools

Dendritic cells and other myeloid cells are capable of activating and modulating a broad range of immune responses. This course focuses on understanding myeloid cell diversity, plasticity and functions in host physiology, disease states (i.e., cancer, inflammatory and infectious diseases) and during therapeutic interventions. Students are exposed to a combination of lectures (including field-expert talks) and dry lab workshops with the goal of acquiring tools for dissecting human and mouse myeloid cell function experimentally. This course is intended for biosciences graduate students and postdocs with basic immunology knowledge (enrollment limited to 20).

BIOS 292: Preparation & Practice: Science Communication & Media

Through tailored lecture, case study, and a practical final project, academic and professional leaders will help you gain insight into the science communications and media industry. This course assists students in developing the communication skills necessary for post-training and internship success in a science communications/media field and it provides an understanding of the scope of career opportunities within the science communications sector, focusing on the development, organization, and management issues specific to it. Through connections with alumni, faculty, and other practitioners from a variety of fields and organizations, as well as hands-on experience with the techniques and methodologies most useful on the job market, students will define their own professional goals, increase their awareness of industry terminology and theories, and hone expertise in the areas of: publishing, editing, workflow, ethics, trends, principles of effective scholarly/news writing, interviewing techniques, and media/website management.

BIOS 300: Advance 1

This is a journal club course where each student is required to present on an original scientific publication. Th student is mentored by a postdoctoral fellow in that area of research on the ¿¿cience. The student is also coached on how to make slides, how to present in a rigorous and scientific manner. Students are also required to ask and answer questions about each paper so that class participation is also a major component of the training. A goal of the course is to expose students to a broad range of scientific topics and technologies and to develop in them the ability to rigorously evaluate them. A second goal is to have students learn presentation skills ranging from figure making to story telling to answering difficult questions. A third goal is to train students in asking rigorous questions in a professional manner.
