NSUR 70Q: Experimental Stroke

Preference to sophomores. How stroke is studied in the laboratory; advances in stroke research over the last two decades; and future directions. Topics include: cellular and molecular mechanisms of neuronal death and survival in the brain after stroke, including necrosis, apoptosis, inflammation, and cell signaling pathways; experimental tools for stroke treatment, such as gene therapy, cell therapy, hypothermia, preconditioning, postconditioning, and other pharmacological treatments; the gap and barrier between laboratory research and clinical translation.

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. The laboratory section is located at the beautiful Arastradero campus, which provides a unique opportunities for first-year students to explore Stanford campuses and adjacent areas.Prerequisites: High school biology.

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.

NSUR 304A: Neurosurgery Clerkship

Open to visitors. 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. Subintern 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). Please note: Visiting students must obtain approval from the Department prior to applying for this clerkship. Email requests to Shanna Selsor at selsor@stanford.edu along with your CV, cover letter, at least 1 letter of recommendation. Prereq: MED 208 or INDE 206. Periods Avail: 1-5 & 12, full-time for four weeks. 5 students per period. Reporting Instructions: Where: Meet neurosurgery residents at D2 Pacs Conference Room at 6:00 am. nUnits: 6. Call Code: 2 (voluntary call for emergency cases at night) nDirector: Gerald Grant, M.D. Other Faculty: S. Chang, A. Desai, R. Dodd, J. Fernandez-Miranda, J. Ghajar, G. Grant, C. Halpern, O.
