  • Course Description


Cell biology experiment is a required course. In this course, students spend most of "in-class" time in the teaching laboratory practicing fundamental techniques in cell biology.Over the course of the term, the students will complete five weeks experimental training in the different areas of cell biology. In addition to learning how to perform these techniques safely, the tutors also help students understand why techniques work the way they do, and what scientific questions can be addressed with different techniques. Our focus is on helping the students integrate factual knowledge with an understanding of experimental design and data analysis.
