This course prepares students for a broad range of opportunities by delivering a practical, hands-on laboratory experience that mirrors the real world of research. Students will independently investigate a novel topic related to biomedicine; learn the science and theory behind commonresearch methods; and apply those fundamental techniques, protocols, assays, and technologies to their own experiments. Some of the techniques utilized in the course include: microbiology, protein quantification assays, molecular cloning, PCR, DNA sequencing, novel drug discovery andscreening. This course is designed to prove the same valuable experienceand guidance you would receive in a research lab.
