Undergraduate registration for the Spring 2014 graduate-level series “Fundamentals of Physiology & Functional Genomics” is open for upper-division undergraduate students. The series consists of three independent modules (GMS 6471, 6472 and 6473). A student must have senior standing and an upper-division GPA of at least 3.00. Please contact the course director, Dr. Hideko Kasahara, to obtain consent (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The “Fundamentals of Physiology & Functional Genomics” courses provide exposure to fundamental physiological concepts with an emphasis on the impact of functional genomics. Three independent modules will be offered for one credit each. Students may take any combination of the three modules. Each course consists of 3-4 hours of lecture, and paper discussion each week. Each module focuses on different organ systems that cover the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, endocrine, gastrointestinal and autonomic nervous systems, along with modern experimental approaches in physiology.
