Spring 2021 (CSUSM)

BIOL 563 Seminar in Physiology

Readings from the primary literature, discussions, and writing on selected classical and current topics in physiology.

Fall 2019

BIO3ZZ3 Topics in Animal Physiology

An advanced seminar with a focus on recent research advances and methodologies in the broad field of physiology, incorporating study of the primary research literature, presentations from students, and guest lectures from researchers. Students will engage in active discussions of scientific research and learn about the scientific method including hypothesis testing, experimental design, physiology methods, model systems, data analysis, and interpretation, and statistical analyses of data. The course has a strong focus on improving students’ oral and written communication skills. Students will be able to value a wide range of physiology research areas.
