BIOS 225: Diversity and Inclusion in Science

Introduction to the social science literature on factors contributing to gender disparities in the scientific workplace (e.g. implicit bias and stereotype threat). Discussions focus on steps that individuals and institutions can take to promote the advancement of women and other underrepresented groups in science, and thus promote the advancement of science.

BIOS 228: Understanding Chemistry in Biology and Biological Experiments

Chemical transformations are central to biology and function and chemical methods provide some of the most powerful tools for everyday experimental biology. Focuses on the concepts and principles underlying biological chemical transformations, allowing students to generalize and understand cell metabolism and regulation. Topics include basic principles and procedures to evaluate and utilize in practice chemical approaches in biological experiments. In-class problems and evaluation of literature. Three-week mini-course.

BIOS 256: Sculptural Data Illustrations

Mini-course. Students will use learn make and print 3D models of their data to use as a focal point when describing their project. We will teach the students how to use Autocad and Blender to process existing data sets and students are encouraged to bring their own data. We strive to make wearable models to enable instant mini-lectures any place and anytime.

BIOS 266: Mini Proposal Bootcamp

In an intensive 1-day format, students learn the fundamentals for writing competitive fellowships, i.e. NIH NRSA fellowships (F30, F31, F32). Topics include developing specific aims; outlining research and career development plans; and using the review criteria to inform writing. Students develop early drafts of the 1-page specific aims, NIH biosketch, and training plan, and receive feedback from instructor. Students are expected to be in the early stages of writing a fellowship proposal.

BIOS 293: Preparation & Practice: Science Policy

Through tailored lecture, case study, and a practical final project, academic and professional leaders will help you gain insight into the science policy industry and the skills necessary to succeed within the various positions and levels available within it. This course aims to demystify the U.S. science policy process and teach both how policy affects scientific funding and administration, and how science is used to create and influence the creation of law and policy in the U.S. This course will be taught in two parts. The first part outlines the basic structure of the US government, and fundamental issues in US political system, and refreshes students who haven't encountered basic civics since high school, this introductory material will cover the structure of the US government, the governance of key agencies, broad concepts of federalism and shared federal and power, the political party system, and a brief and general modern history of the role of science in policy making.

The second part will review four key concepts: 1) who's who and how they work. 2) The policy making process and the role of science in creating policy. 3) Government funding science. 4) Issues, theories and trends in science and policy. This final section will review a variety of cross-cutting issues in science policy development, including innovation theory, the role of uncertainty, and a discussion of the government's role as a developer and repository of science data, and other current topics in the relationship between science and government.
