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 286: Single Cell Immunogenomics

Preference is for graduate students and undergraduates with background in biology and genetics. The emphasis of the course will be on learning the essential principles of single cell genomics as applied to research questions in immunology. The topics will include understanding the fundamental principles of the technology, experimental methods, types of single cell sequencing assays available and data analysis. The emphasis will be on how these methods are used to delineate immunologic cell types, their interactions with other cells in the local microenvironment and determining differential gene expression patterns and signatures. Specialized topics will include the analysis of single cell T-cell and B-cell receptor characteristics as well as joining antibody staining information at single cell resolution. Guest speakers will include thought leaders in the field who are demonstrating how single cell immunogenomics are being applied to immunotherapy development. Enrollment is limited.

BIOS 287: Proteostatis: guarding the proteome in health and disease

The control of cellular protein homeostasis, also called Proteostasis, is emerging as the central cellular process controlling the stability, function and quality control of the proteome and central to our understanding of a vast range of diseases. The proteostasis machinery maintains the function of destabilized and mutant proteins; assists the degradation of damaged and aggregated proteins and monitors the health of the proteome, adjusting it in response to environmental or metabolic stresses. This class will introduce students to the exciting cutting edge discoveries in this field, and will relate them to medical and biotechnology applications, as well as how a better understanding of proteostasis can be leveraged to understand fundamental biological processes, such as evolution and aging and to ameliorate a wide range of diseases. Given the increasingly close links between aging, protein misfolding, and neurodegenerative disease, understanding proteostasis networksis of critical fundamental and practical importance. These insights are particularly relevant in view of the increased prevalence of late-onset neurodegenerative aggregation diseases caused by an increasingly elderly population.

BIOS 288: Quantitative Methods in Marine Conservation and Ocean Science

The goal of this two-week mini-course will be to quantitatively characterize marine fishery populations and how these populations change as a consequence of environmental drivers, anthropogenic pressures, and, ultimately, climate change. We will objectively assess the status or health of fishery populations by applying ecological theory and statistical and mathematical models to real data collected on marine species. We will learn how to effectively communicate quantitative scientific information and learn what it takes to wisely manage these resources.

BIOS 291: Preparation & Practice: Management Consulting

This course is designed for students who are interested in learning about consulting including tools and techniques to gain a consulting mindset. The course requires students to complete short assignments, participate in classroom discussions, and a team project. Students will have the opportunity to understand the consulting process right from sourcing and starting engagements to closure and follow up engagements. Further, with the help of some practical execution in the classroom, students will also learn how to manage client needs and situations, articulating client needs in a succinct proposal, planning and executing consulting assignments, managing client interactions and in the process, learn to leverage some common frameworks for consulting.

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.
