AS.020.104 - Freshman Seminar: From Genes to DNA and Back

A course consisting of introductory lectures followed by student presentations in the form of seminars. The issues we usually analyze are: How did we arrive at the concept of the “gene”? What are the early observations that gave substance to this concept? How did we arrive at the “one gene, one enzyme” dogma? What is the chemical nature of the gene? Is DNA enough for regulated gene expression? Is it “all in our genes”? What is genetic plasticity and epigenetics? What about genomics and proteomics? In the course of our analyses we bring together observations, and experimental results and ideas not only from biological sciences (Genetics, Cell and Developmental Biology and Genetics) but also from Physics, Sociology, Politics and Philosophy. We do all this in order to clarify how observations turn to ideas, then dogmas and even biases that distort the true meaning of objective Sciences.

AS.020.380 - Chromatin, Chromosomes and The Cell Nucleus

The course will present analysis of the structural basis of the genome organization in a eukaryotic nucleus and the utilization of its genomic content. We start with the analysis of the fluctuations of the structure of the double helix in response to its cellular microenvironment that yield DNA structural and functional polymorphism. Next we will deal with the mechanics of DNA compaction into chromatin and the differentiation of the chromatin structure at the level of the nucleosome via histone variants and posttranslational modifications and chromatin-based epigenetics. We will next move to chromosomal territories, chromosomal imprinting and chromosome inactivation. Finally, a few lectures will focus on selected topics of special interests that bridge current basic discoveries with potential medical applications such as the nature of telomeres and telomerase-related diseases; the role of histone octamer tails in epigenetics; transcription factors and the regulated expression of the genome. Whenever possible. paradigms will be used that correlate chromatin differentiation to certain human diseases.

AS.020.392 - Anatomy & Physiology

Lectures will cover descriptive and functional anatomy; and should leave students with a better understanding of anatomical terminology and the relationship of structure to biological function within the human body. Additionally, students will gain perspective on human disease as they study the anatomical and functional basis of clinical symptoms.

AS.020.375 - Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology

An introduction to the human gross anatomy. It will seek to give students enough background in anatomical knowledge and vocabulary to help them in their initial training in medical school; however, it will not be a substitute for anatomy courses in medical school. It will focus on normal adult anatomy, and it will cover each of the main regions of the body - i.e., thorax, abdomen and pelvis, back and limbs, and head and neck. Lectures will cover descriptive and functional anatomy, ultimately leaving students with a better understanding of anatomical terminology and 3D relationships of structures within the human body, and better problem-solving skills as they begin to relate symptoms to causes, again at the gross anatomical level.

AS.020.340 - Developmental Genetics Pilot Lab

Modern Advances in Genome Engineering with CRISPR: CRISPR is widely considered to be one of the greatest advances in science in the past decade, providing researchers with the tools to precisely and affordably edit genomes in a timely and targeted manner. In additional to this commonly discussed laboratory usage of the CRISPR system, this technique serves many other roles in both nature and laboratory settings, and is utilized in a vast array of model organisms.

AS.360.101 - Discover Hopkins: Physiology & Disease: Brain, Muscle, and Cardiopulmonary

An understanding of physiology is an invaluable part of any budding physicians repertoire. In this, the second of a two-part course introducing classical physiology in the human body, and how it functions in both health and disease, we will cover guts (renal, digestive, and immune systems), as well as hormones (basic endocrinology) and sex/reproductive physiology. In addition to classroom study, students will be challenged to synthesize their newfound knowledge by taking part in immersive afternoon activities. While this represents a wholly separate course, students should also consider taking the first part of this series (“Physiology & Disease: Core Systems) to bolster their understanding. Ultimately, knowledge of basic physiological processes should impact the student's future research and serve as a foundation for all future scientific and biomedical endeavors. There are no prerequisites for the course, but a background in biology is help.

AS.360.101 - Discover Hopkins: Physiology & Disease: Brain, Muscle, and Cardiopulmonary

An understanding of physiology is an invaluable part of any budding physicians or scientists repertoire. This course introduces classical physiology in the human body, and how it functions in both health and disease. This course will cover the core topics including nervous system, muscular, and cardiopulmonary physiology and disease. Additionally, students will be working outside the classroom to consolidate and reinforce their new understanding of the subject. Ultimately, knowledge of basic physiology should impact future research and serve as a foundation for all future scientific and biomedical endeavors. There are no prerequisites for the course, but a background in biology is helpful. Students should be generally enthusiastic and uninhibited.
