NSUR 81N: Mitochondrial Transport and Function in Neuronal Health and Death

As our population continues to age, age-dependent neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson¿s, Alzheimer¿s, and ALS are becoming more prevalent and thus pose a daunting danger to public health nationwide. Effective treatments are desperately needed, however, we still know very little about how neurons die in those diseases. One organelle that is especially important to neuronal health is mitochondria, the power plants for the cell. In this IntroSem, we will learn how neurons employ molecular machinery to regulate, transport, and distribute mitochondria, and importantly, how these fundamental regulations are compromised in neurological disorders. A hands-on laboratory section is available for students who are interested in learning imaging mitochondrial transport in live cells using confocal microscopy, sample preparation, and dissection.

NSUR 239: NeuroTech Training Seminar (STATS 242)

This is a required course for students in the NeuroTech training program, and is also open to other graduate students interested in learning the skills necessary for neurotechnology careers in academia or industry. Over the academic year, topics will include: emerging research in neurotechnology, communication skills, team science, leadership and management, intellectual property, entrepreneurship and more.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable 9 times (up to 9 units total)

NSUR 249: Experimental Immersion in Neuroscience (STATS 249)

This course provides students from technical backgrounds (e.g., physics, applied physics, electrical or chemical engineering, bioengineering, computer science, statistics) the opportunity to learn how they can apply their expertise to advancing experimental research in the neurosciences. Students will visit one neuroscience lab per week to watch experiments, understand the technical apparatus and animal models being used, discuss the questions being addressed, and interact with students and others conducting the research. This course is strongly encouraged for students who wish to apply to the NeuroTech graduate training program. Our course has limited enrollment, therefore, if you are interested in registering please complete the form here: https://forms.gle/r2YhEwRqZtEQe5cf6 prior and someone will follow-up with you with a permission code accordingly.

NSUR 304A: Neurosurgery Clerkship

VISITING: Closed to visitors. TYPE OF CLERKSHIP: Elective. DESCRIPTION: An advanced clerkship designed to actively engage the student in the diagnosis, operative treatment, and post-operative care of patients suffering from a wide variety of neurosurgical problems including tumors of the brain and spine, cerebrovascular abnormalities, infection, trauma, and congenital abnormalities of the central and peripheral nervous system. Students assume a high level of responsibility, essentially functioning at the level of a first-year resident (intern), managing complex, acutely ill patients, scrubbing in on cases in the operating room, and functioning as an accountable team member. Among the responsibilities are: (1) primary work-ups of new patients; (2) writing orders, managing patients in conjunction with a resident or attending, and conducting appropriate intern-level procedures; (3) taking night call; (4) writing notes and dictating summaries as assigned by the supervising resident(s). PREREQUISITES: None. PERIODS AVAILABLE: 1-12, full-time for 4 weeks, 5 students per period. CLERKSHIP DIRECTOR: Gerald Grant, M.D. CLERKSHIP COORDINATOR: Shanna Selsor, 650-725-0701, selsor@stanford.edu. REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS: Where: Meet neurosurgery residents at the M4 Conference Room at 500P; Time: 5:45 am. CALL CODE: 2 - voluntary call for emergency cases at night. OTHER FACULTY: S. Chang, A. Desai, R. Dodd, J. Fernandez-Miranda, J. Ghajar, G. Grant, C. Halpern, O. Harris, M. Hayden-Gephart, J. Henderson, D. Hong, G. Li, M. Lee, K. Mahaney, J. Park, J. Ratliff, L. Shuer, H. Singh, S. Skirboll, G. Steinberg, S. Tharin and A. Veeravagu. LOCATION: SUMC.

NSUR 304B: Neurosurgery Clerkship

VISITING: Open to visitors. TYPE OF CLERKSHIP: Elective. DESCRIPTION: Acquaints students with the diagnosis, operative treatment, and postoperative care of patients suffering injuries to or diseases of the central or peripheral nervous system. Students work closely with faculty and the resident staff at the PAVAMC, evaluating patients in the outpatient clinic and in the hospital. The student participates in diagnostic procedures, observes during surgery, and participates in postoperative care. The PAVAMC rotation involves neither pediatric nor trauma cases. and the amount of acute trauma is minimal. There will be teaching and work rounds, tutorial sessions, and weekly teaching conferences at Stanford University Medical Center, focused on neurosurgery, neurology and neuroradiology. A 4 week full-time clerkship is recommended for students considering neurosurgery as a career. PREREQUISITES: None. PERIODS AVAILABLE: 1-12, full-time for 4 weeks, 1 student per period.
