PHAR 630 - Redox Signaling & Free Rad Bio
The objective of this course is to provide basic knowledge of reactive oxygen species, reactive nitrogen species, antioxidants, and other redox compounds to Ph.D. level students. As free radical and redox-regulated processes play vital roles in various pathophysiological conditions, knowledge gained in this course will help students to perform research concerning these processes in their fields. Thus, the course is designed for graduate students in broad disciplines including biochemistry, cell biology, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, physiology, neuroscience, tumor biology, and translational science. The course will cover basic free radical/redox biology with a written examination, followed by applications of such knowledge to free radical and redox research with training in fostering critical thinking by engaging in discussions, oral presentations, debates, data analysis, and analysis of published papers on molecular mechanisms as well as clinical and epidemiological studies.
This course is designed for research scientists, open to PhD and MS students with a strong interest and/or background in research with permission by the course director only.
