NEW COURSE for Spring 2013: Contemporary Topics in Cell Signaling

Each 1 credit module investigates principles and mechanisms of signal transduction and cell proliferation control with an emphasis on in-depth discussion of current literature and unanswered questions in the field.

Each 1 credit module investigates principles and mechanisms of signal transduction and cell proliferation control with an emphasis on in-depth discussion of current literature and unanswered questions in the field.  Modules are team-taught with major themes selected by the instructors each year.  Themes include protein kinases, GTPases, cell cycle control, signaling specificity and feedback (networks), tumor suppressors and oncogenes, signaling in development and stem cell biology etc.  Enrollment is by permission of each module leader.  Classes meet Tues/Thurs for 90 minutes each for a total of 5 weeks per module, and modules are taught consecutively.  Class time and location will be determined by registered participants’ schedules.  (Note that this course replaces CBIO 644, Spring “SuperCell.”)
