Human Anatomy
AS.020.375 (01)

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.

Cell Biology Lab
AS.020.316 (10)

The Cell Biology Laboratory will use projects with the nematode C. elegans and mouse 3T3 cells in culture to illustrate experimental systems which are used in cell biology. Light microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, RNA interference, fluorescence-activated cell sorting, Western blotting and the culture of nematodes and cells are techniques which will be used. Because we will be using growing organisms, there will be at least one week when students will have to visit the lab the day after their section meets to complete an experiment.

Comparative Physiology Lab
AS.020.377 (02)

This course examines the physiological principles that guide animal life processes. As a complement to the Comparative Animal Physiology lecture course, this Laboratory examines fundamental physiological principles through hands-on investigations of animal physiology using zebrafish and mussel as model systems and research-grade data acquisition systems.
