BMS 5433 - Stem Cell Biology (3)

The course will provide students with knowledge of wide-ranging topics related to stem cell and regenerative biology, including: a brief history of the field, research on animal models of regeneration, tissue engineering and the promise of disease cures. As a part of the learning objectives of this course, students will be able to list the properties that define a stem cell; explain how stem cells are derived for scientific research; compare and contrast tissue-specific stem cell types and the mechanisms that regulate them; list the common and extrapolate the potential clinical use(s) of stem cells; discuss emerging regenerative research findings and how they relate to stem cell biology.
