BMI 7151 Seminar in Precision Medicine

1 semester credit hour
Lecture contact hours: 1
Prerequisite: Consent of instructor

Seminar in Precision Medicine will introduce and discuss recent advances, frontier technologies, case studies, and future direction in precision medicine. The topics cover precision medicine, bioinformatics, systems biology, pharmacogenomics, genetics, genomic medicine, study design, methodologies and computational tools. Students enrolled in the course for credit are required to give a seminar presentation, attend at least 80% of the weekly seminars, and fill out evaluation forms. Each student seminar must be supervised by a faculty member (not necessarily the student's advisor). The faculty member will work with students to ensure that the seminars are both appropriate and interesting for the audience.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will:

  • Describe and explain recent advances, technologies, case studies, and future directions in precision medicine.
  • Evaluate and critique research in precision medicine, including preliminary research and published research.
  • Develop and deliver a high quality academic presentation on precision medicine to a research audience.
