Let's experiment

Before you step into the lab to do an experiment, you have a long list of questions: How do I design an experiment that will give a clear answer to my question? What model system should I use? What are my controls? What's an ideal sample size? How can I tell if the experiment worked?

Sharing your research

Giving a research talk (say, at a conference, to your department or in your research group meeting) is a really important part of a scientist's career. This course is designed for anyone who will be giving research-based scientific talks in the future.

Writing for science

The goal of the course is to develop effective writing skills for academic and professional contexts.

Planning your scientific journey (EDBB)

Planning Your Scientific Journey: Being successful as a scientist requires more than acquiring knowledge and developing experimental skills. It also requires: (1) asking a good scientific question, (2) establishing a clear plan of action, and (3) seeking advice along the way.

Diffusion in biological systems

This course introduces students to models of active and passive transport in biological systems. This will include the effect of external factors (motor proteins, crowding) and membrane dynamics on transportation. Finally, the course will cover the emergence of intracellular collective motion.

Topics in biophysics and physical biology

This course provides exposure to research in biophysics and physical biology, with emphasis on the nature of scientific breakthroughs, and using critical reading of scientific literature. Each week, we will discuss the research of one recipient of the Max Delbruck Prize in Biological Physics.
