CONJ 530: Directing Stem Cells Toward Regenerative Medicine

Description

Course description: In this class we will discuss three topics: the recent findings on adult and embryonic stem cell classes and their niches, on epigenetic control of stem cells and stem cells in human disease. Learning objectives: After this class, the students should have a solid foundation on stem cell biology, epigenetic analysis and regulation of stem cells and human diseases connected to stem cell biology. Course materials and/or textbooks: The course will go through recent seminal papers on stem cell biology. Course requirements, examinations and grading: The student will develop a stem cell research proposal at the end of the quarter with the help of a chosen faculty member, write one page abstract on the idea and present the proposal to the class. 50% participation including discussions on the papers 50% final project and presentation
