PEMM 271 Advanced Biomedical Sciences

This course emphasizes the integration of molecular, cellular, and systems level information and the experimental approaches used to understand physiology and pathophysiology. It is designed to provide graduate students with a more sophisticated understanding of the major systems of an organism and how they act and interact in order for an individual to adapt and survive in the face of changing environmental resources and challenges. The course is organized into week-long, "stand alone" modules that cover integrative, translational topics in immunology, cardiovascular physiology, endocrinology, and neurobiology (e.g.. influenza, congestive heart failure, sleep disorders, drug addiction, space physiology). Course meetings are a mixture of lectures and in-class discussions led by the participating faculty.

PEMM 271 is designed to be tailored to the needs of the students. The modules vary year-to-year based on the interests of the students in any given class. Past modules have ranged from neurobiology, to cardiovascular physiology, respiratory physiology, immunology and immunotherapy, as well as endocrinology. The class format have included laboratory exercises and demonstrations, visits to clinical laboratories and diagnostic centers, and "hands on" opportunities with state-of-the-art electrophysiological and cardiovascular techniques. Reading and discussion of primary research articles, reviews, and other on-line materials supplement the course activities. Students interested in registering for PEMM 271 are encouraged to meet as a group with the course director at least a month before the start of the course to identify module topics of interest and PEMM faculty to lead the module.
