Let’s Do Experiments for Research

3 credits


Medical Pharmacology and Physiology
School of Medicine

This course is designed to provide students a hands on opportunity to do experiments in the first part of the semester, students will be working primarily on two projects that they chose from a list developed by the previous class; the second half of the semester will be not only working on those projects, but developing the choice of projects for students to start for the next time the course is offered. The projects can be basic science, translational science, or developing education activities/experiments or a combination of these. Some of the choices will involve safe materials and will require no additional training. Other choices may involve human subjects, animal tissues, or hazardous chemicals in which case, the students will need to obtain the appropriate training and that can be done to fulfill part of this course’s requirements.
