Cutting-edge research in bioscience and biotechnology draws upon ideas and methods from a broad range of academic disciplines spanning the sciences, engineering and medicine. Three areas of bioscience and biotechnology will be represented, each section is led by an instructor who does research in the particular field, and students will focus their study in one subject area for the entirety of the course. In each case, students learn general methodologies and principles for study and research in the biosciences while getting a glimpse of advanced research and exciting developments in the specific area of their section. The course may include a guest lecture and course-related field trip, and a lab component. For Summer 2018, the fields of Neuroscience , 3D Bioprinting (tissue engineering), Nanobiomaterials, and Microbiology will be represented. Note that section topics are subject to change.
