CELL BIOL 250  Research  (1-8 Units)  Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer  

Instructor(s): Staff

Prerequisite(s): Completion of 2 quarters of Biochemistry 215 in the year prior

Restrictions: Students must be in year 2 or above

Activities: Laboratory, Independent Study

The course is intended to give students hands-on experience in investigation of a fundamental question in biology using modern techniques and approaches in Cell Bio. The scope of the research project, formulation of the hypothesis, and the necessary experimental approaches taken to test the hypothesis will be determined based on active input from the student and the lab’s Principle Investigator. The student is expected to become increasingly independent in each of these aspects of the project.
