BIOS 265: Introduction to Quantitative Reasoning in Biology

Mini-course. Focus on development of basic skills for quantitative reasoning in biology, including order-of-magnitude estimation and use of the broad spectrum of time scales to enable understanding. Primary examples include going from molecular size and energy scales to functions of single cells and going from mutational and selective processes acting on organisms to evolution of populations on laboratory global scales.

BIOS 270: Planetary Health: Socioeconomic & Ecological Links Between Human Health & Earth's Natural Ecosystems

Two of the biggest challenges humanity has to face - promoting human health and halting environmental degradation are are strongly connected and too big to be addressed in an incremental, sector-specific way. Breakthroughs can be achieved through a creative, interdisciplinary approach that fully recognizes the complex nature of links between human health and healthy, functioning ecosystems. Through a series of lectures and case-study discussions with experts from multiple Schools and Departments, students will develop an in-depth understanding of the "Planetary Health" concept, its foundation, goals, priority areas of action and methods of investigation, and the most relevant immediate and long-term challenges.

BIOS 280: Apico-basolateral Epithelial Cell Polarity

Cells must polarize, localizing unique macromolecules along distinct axes, to function correctly. This lecture/lab mini-course will provide students with a broad overview of cell polarity, using recent literature to guide understanding of the shared and divergent mechanisms underlying polarity establishment in different tissues and organisms. Additionally, students will engage in hands-on research using C. elegans and a large particle flow cytometer (BIOSORTER) to perform high throughput forward genetic screens to discover novel pathways involved in epithelial polarity establishment. This course is geared toward STEM graduate students, postdocs, and advanced undergraduates interested in topics and applications in cell and developmental biology.

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 282: Clarifying Career Choices: Your Self-Reflective Research Project

Using the ADAPT Integrated Development Model, this course will focus on the areas of Development and Awareness. It is designed for students who aspire to gain clarity and insights about themselves their career choices and options. It is designed to encourage self-knowledge and increased awareness of roles and job opportunities inside and outside of academia, where an in-depth Science background is desired. The course requires students to complete up to 3 assessments, short writing assignments, and participate in small group discussions. All students will have the opportunity to have a 1:1 follow-up session with the Instructor to discuss the insights gained from the course as well as opportunities to network with alumni and future employers from various fields.

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 289: Preparation & Practice: Biotechnology Business and Finance

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 CEOs, expert practitioners, and investment professionals to gain practical insight into the mechanics and practices of the biotechnology industry, and the variety of roles and responsibilities available to them.
