Medical Sciences Courses
“Medical Sciences” is the name for the multi-disciplinary modules and courses designed for students who want to study more than one basic medical science. The signature courses of the Honors Specialization in Medical Sciences are an advanced laboratory, Medical Sciences 4900F/G, and a lecture course, Medical Sciences 4930F/G. Offered jointly by the Basic Medical Science Departments, these two courses introduce students to a variety of techniques and topics in medical research. The laboratory provides an introduction to research, with an emphasis on hands-on experience. Major topics include animal models of human disease, real time PCR, biochemical assays, histology, and medical imaging. The lecture course, designed to complement the laboratory course, will give students the background knowledge in areas of disease, metabolism, proteomics and signaling pathways. Scientific writing is also included in the course material.
