BIOS 236: Developmental Biology in the Ocean: Comparative Embryology and Larval Development

Three-week course at Hopkins Marine Station. Focuses on the embryology and larval development of a broad range of marine invertebrate phyla. The goal of the course is to give students an appreciation of the range of developmental strategies and larval forms in the ocean and why this is critical for constructing hypotheses of EvoDevo and animal evolution. Includes observation and documentation of the development of embryos and larvae by scientific illustration and photo/video microscopy. Pre-requisite: Developmental Biology coursework and instructor consent.

BIOS 285: Rodent Animal Models: Selection, Detection, Dissection, Inspection

This 2-week mini-course will discuss pragmatic approaches to rodent utilization with the aim of empowering graduate students across multiple disciplines to maximize rodent-derived data and minimize the redundant use of animals in biomedical research. Topics will include an introduction to clinical models, practical aspects of rodent blood collection and interpretation, algorithmic approaches to tissue collection for research applications, and an introduction to rodent histopathology, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence. Course instructors include board-certified laboratory animal medicine clinicians and comparative pathologists that are expert h these topics. This course is open to graduate students with or without prior rodent experience.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1

BIOS 296: Preparation & Practice: Biotechnology Business

This course combines guest lectures with case study and hands-on projects to examine the necessary skills and practical steps necessary to create a business from biotechnology invention. Students will interface with current C-level executives and expert practitioners to gain practical insight into the business mechanics and practices of the biotechnology industry, and the variety of roles and responsibilities available to them.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1

BIOS 297: COVID-19 Pandemic: Lessons Learned

The Covid-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for individuals, society, medicine and science. The SARS-Cov-2 virus rapidly disseminated since first reports from China on December 31, 2019 and by March 11, 2020 it was declared a global pandemicby the World Health Organization. This course will cover various aspects of Covid-19 including clinical perspectives, public health response, impact of disease modeling, and results of clinical trials and research efforts. As the pandemic evolves the course will discuss the most current data and reflect on successes and ongoing challenges as the world grapples with a pandemic of unmatched proportions.
