STEMREM 199: Undergraduate Research

Students undertake investigations sponsored by individual faculty members. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1-18 | Repeatable for credit

STEMREM 200: Stem Cell Intensive

Open to first year Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine graduate students or consent of Instructor. Introductory lectures given by faculty in the Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine interdisciplinary graduate program are intended to provide students with insight into potential rotation labs. Includes some hands-on laboratory exercises covering basic methods of tissue culture, mouse embryo fibroblast (MEF) preparation, embryonic stem and induced pluripotent stem (ES/iPS) cell culture, differentiation, DNA isolation, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), sequencing, flow cytometry, and basic microscopy.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1

STEMREM 201A: Stem Cells and Human Development: From Embryo to Cell Lineage Determination

For graduate, medical, and advanced undergraduate students. Prepares students for the future of regenerative medicine by exploring central concepts in stem cell biology and the actual experiments that led to these concepts. Provides educational foundation for future physician-scientists to understand mechanisms underlying regenerative therapies. The latest advances in stem cell research will be discussed, including tissue regeneration; how stem cells are discovered by lineage tracing or transplantation; how stem cells differentiate and form organized tissues; stem cell niches; signaling centers and extracellular signals; chromatin and cellular reprogramming; organoids; and cancer stem cells, with emphasis on unresolved issues in the field.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1-3

STEMREM 201B: Stem Cells and Human Development Laboratory

Targeted enrollment to first year graduate students or any other student who wishes to improve their ability to design, perform, analyze, and communicate results from laboratory-based experiments. Content early in the quarter is focused on how to design an experimental aim and approach. Practical examples are drawn from the participating students¿ fall-quarter research rotations (or current research projects). In mid-quarter, the focus shifts from how to design the experiment to how to update the PI on this week¿s experimental progress and the weekly meeting emulates a typical lab meeting with brief presentations of experimental progress from each student. Focus shifts at the end of the quarter to strategies for concise presentation of data and conclusions drawn from experimental results. Provides hands-on skills to maximize both the student¿s experience during a research rotation and to improve communication skills between student and mentor (skills that are valuable to any student at any stage of their research career). SCBRM students must take concurrently with STEMREM 201A.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1

STEMREM 202: Stem Cells and Translational Medicine

For graduate, undergraduate and medical students. Focus is on the fundamentals of stem cell biology and stem cell applications in basic research and translational medicine. Topics include exploration of the well-studied system of hematopoiesis, molecular pathways of pluripotency and tissue-specific stem cells and ends with coverage of aging as related to stem cell dynamics. Lectures are topically paired to cover the basic science of each topic, followed by clinical applications within each field of study. Students will use lecture and literature content to construct a research proposal based on biological or clinical concepts learned during the quarter.
Terms: Win | Units: 1-3 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 3 units total)

STEMREM 203: Stem Cells Immersion: Applications in Medicine, Business and Law

For graduate and medical students enrolled in the SCBRM PhD program or other students by permission from the Instructor. Career-development immersions are custom designed by the student and advisor to provide clinical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology or business insights into the world of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine from multiple vantage points. The Immersion sets the stage for students to explore research and translation beyond the academic sphere and gain the necessary knowledge to move their career forward when completing the PhD.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 3
Instructors: Palmer, T. (PI)

STEMREM 205: Bioinformatics for Stem Cell and Cancer Biology

For graduate and medical students. High-throughput technologies and data science are essential tools in modern stem cell biology and cancer research. Students will gain practical exposure to bioinformatics concepts and techniques required to address biological questions within these research areas. The beginning of the quarter is focused on foundational principles underlying bioinformatics and genomics. Focus for the remainder of the quarter is on direct, hands-on experience with applications to common research problems. Topics include analysis of bulk and single-cell sequencing data, single gene to whole-genome analysis, machine learning, and data visualization. Intended for biology students without a background in computer science, or for students in a quantitative discipline interested in gaining exposure to key challenges in stem cell and cancer genomics. Basic programming experience is recommended but not required.
Terms: Win | Units: 2 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 4 units total)
Instructors: Newman, A. (PI)

STEMREM 223: Biology and Disease of Hematopoiesis (IMMUNOL 223)

Hematopoiesis is the formation, development, and differentiation of blood cells. Lecture and journal club. Topics will include definitive and adult hematopoiesis, myeloid and lymphoid development, hematopoietic diseases, stem cell niche, bone marrow transplant, and methods and models used to study hematopoiesis. For upper level undergraduates or graduate students. Pre-requisite for undergraduates: Biology or Human Biology core, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 3

STEMREM 250: Regenerative Medicine Seminar Series

For graduate, medical and undergraduate students. A forum for Stanford researchers to meet, hear about what is going on in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford, and spark collaborations. Topics include all areas of regenerative medicine, broadly defined, ranging from fundamental biological principles and basic science advances to novel applications in biotechnology, stem cell biology, and human disease.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable 6 times (up to 6 units total)
Instructors: Wernig, M. (PI)

STEMREM 280: Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine Journal Club

For graduate, medical and undergraduate students. Review of current literature in both basic and translational medicine as it relates to stem cell biology and/or regenerative medicine in a seminar format consisting of both faculty and student presentations. Includes discussions led by faculty experts in the area covered for that particular session. Topics may range widely, depending on the available literature and students' interests. Students are expected to review the chosen article before class presentations and participate in discussion. Discussion includes methodology and statistical analysis of each study and its relevance to stem cell biology and/or regenerative medicine.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable 6 times (up to 12 units total)
Instructors: Wernig, M. (PI)
