Research in Biological Sciences and Its Social Impact

This course focuses to enrich students understanding, communication, and access of and to research in the biological sciences.

Thursdays, 5:15 PM – 7:15 PM

Working to remove the myths about fundamental and translation research, this course focuses on informing students beyond the public perception of biology and biological research. Striving to develop students’ scientific communication, personal identity in science, and the intersection between research and community, we will engage students through a collaboration with the Philadelphia community in addition to lecture and discussion based learning.
