MI 70Q: Photographing Nature

Utilizes the idiom of photography to learn about nature, enhance observation, and explore scientific concepts. Builds upon the pioneering photographic work of Eadweard J. Muybridge on human and animal locomotion. A secondary goal is to learn the grammar, syntax, composition, and style of nature photography to enhance the use of this medium as a form of scientific communication and also to explore the themes of change across time and space. Scientific themes to be explored include: taxonomy, habitat preservation, climate change; species diversity; survival and reproductive strategies; ecological niches and coevolution, carrying capacity and sustainability, population densities, predation, and predator-prey relationships, open-space management, the physics of photography. Extensive use of field trips and class critque.

MI 115B: The Vaccine Revolution

Advanced seminar. Human aspects of viral disease, focusing on recent discoveries in vaccine development and emerging infections. Journal club format: students choose articles from primary scientific literature, write formal summaries, and synthesize them into a literature review. Emphasis is on analysis, experimental design, and interpretation of data. Oral presentations. Enrollment limited to 8. Prerequisite: prior enrollment in MI 116, The Human Virosphere or consent of instructor required.
Terms: Spr | Units: 6
Instructors: Siegel, R. (PI)

MI 155B: Humans and Viruses II

Introduction to human virology integrating epidemiology, molecular biology, clinical sciences, social sciences, history, and the arts. Emphasis on host pathogen interactions and policy issues. Topics: measles and viral epidemiology, rotavirus and world health, rabies and infections of the brain, HPV and cancer -causing viruses, herpes simplex and viral latency, CMV and viral teratogenesis, retrovirology and endogenous viral sequences, HIV and viral treatement, viral hepatitis and chronic infections, prions and diseases of life style. Prerequisite: MI155A or HUMBIO 155H.

MI 160: Climate Crisis Management

Ongoing climate change has precipitated a broad range of crises including extreme weather, fires, droughts, crop-failures, and emerging infections along with a broad range of health effects. Within recent years these events have become more frequent and more severe highlighting a critical need for crisis assessment and management. This seminar will focus on the principles involved in the effective preparation, prevention, mitigation, leadership, management, and recovery from these climate-driven disasters. We will emphasize the importance of resilience in organizations and teams. We will discuss how these principles may be generalized to other examples of crisis management. Class time will be devoted to didactic and Socratic interactions with experts, analysis of case studies including the experience of the Red Cross, simulation exercises, and field trips.

MI 198: Directed Reading in Microbiology and Immunology

Fields of study are decided in consultation with sponsoring professor. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-15 | Repeatable for credit

MI 199: Undergraduate Research

Investigations sponsored by individual faculty members. Possible fields: microbial molecular biology and physiology, microbial pathogenicity, immunology, virology, and molecular parasitology. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.

MI 210: Advanced Pathogenesis of Bacteria, Viruses, and Eukaryotic Parasites

For graduate and medical students, and advanced undergraduates; required of first-year graduate students in Microbiology and Immunology. The molecular mechanisms by which microorganisms invade animal and human hosts, express their genomes, interact with macromolecular pathways in the infected host, and induce disease. Current literature. Undergraduate students interested in taking this class must meet with the instructor to obtain approval before enrolling.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4

MI 250: Frontiers in Microbiology and Immunology

Required of first- and second-year students in Microbiology and Immunology. How to evaluate biological research. Held in conjunction with the Microbiology and Immunology Friday noon seminar series. Before the seminar, students and faculty discuss one or more papers from the speaker's primary research literature on a related topic. After the seminar, students meet informally with the speaker to discuss their research.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit

MI 255: Measles and Sneezles and Things That Go Mumps in the Night

A study of measles (until recently one of the leading causes of death in the world and the most contagious disease agent ever studied) and its relatives in the paramyxovirus family, including mumps, parainfluenza viruses, hendra, and nipah, as well as a number of important animal pathogens. Investigates the nature of viruses using the paramyxoviruses as a paradigm. Topics include: the history of this devastating group of pathogens; basic aspects of paramyxovirus taxonomy and molecular virology; viral epidemiology, emergence, and eradication, including the pioneering studies of Peter Panum; the use, misuse, and abuse of science; the interactions between pathogen and host and how this interplay leads to disease, including the appearance of a bizarre brain complication with 100% mortality; the politics and economics of infection; how a putative link between the measles vaccine and autism entered the public eye, and how it refuses to disappear despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Lectures, discussion, student presentations. No science background necessary.

MI 260: Creative Visualization Studio

In this class, we will teach students to build small, physical explanations of their data for display and use as visual aids in person, at a poster or in a talk. We will use a range of media, including laser cutters, paper cutters, silk screening, CNC routing, 3D printing, jewelry making, embroidery, mold making, stop motion animation, or stained glass cutting. Classes will be split into workshop time¿for learning techniques and brainstorming¿and lab time, where students can work on individual projects. Students will be expected to complete 5 small visualization projects over the course of the quarter. Permission numbers are required to enroll. To obtain a permission number please email Professor David Schneider at dschneid@stanford.edu.
