2023 - 2024
Monday, 3:30 - 4:50pm
Provides a platform for doctoral and postdoctoral students (postdoctoral fellows) and faculty to present and discuss impactful scientific papers from the current literature that deal with mechanisms underlying environmental disease along with accompanying methods. Papers are organized around a term-specific theme selected by the course directors.
Learning ObjectivesUpon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
- Critically read and evaluate scientific papers, and identify criteria for assessing the quality of the science
- Analyze and assess new methodological approaches in the areas of biochemistry, physiology, biophysics, cell and molecular biology, genomics, epigenetics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.
- Evaluate the pathophysiologic pathways of environmental disease at the molecular, cellular, tissue, whole organ-whole animal, and individual-to-population levels
- Give a high quality presentation that effectively conveys scientific results
