BISC-499: From Developmental Biology to Regenerative Medicine
This course focuses on general mechanistic principles that underpin development, maintenance and repair of body systems from worms to man. We will discuss critical experimental studies that frame the current view of animal organization, and the application of knowledge-gained to the goals of regenerative medicine. Lectures will be supplemented with a study of groundbreaking papers from the primary literature.
