BIOS 217 The Ultimate Face Book: Understanding Normal and Abnormal Craniofacial Development
How the face is assembled during embryonic development to gain insights into facial birth defects and new "regenerative medicine" approaches to reconstruct the face following disease or injury. Learn how "a man finds room in the few square inches of the face for the traits of all his ancestors; for the expression of all his history, and his wants."
BIOS 218 Molecular basis of membrane traffic
Transport of proteins through the secretory and endocytic pathways is essential for life; dysregulation causes disease and pathogens hijack these pathways to their best advantage. 5 international experts present didactic lectures and engage with students. Topics include: history of genetic and biochemical experiments to identify key components; reconstitution approaches; coated vesicle formation.... More Description for BIOS 218
