Courses currently taught by Martin Hudson

BIOL 3410: Cell Biology

  • 3 Class Hours, 0 Laboratory Hours, 3 Credit Hours
  • Prerequisite: Grade of “C” or better in BIOL 1108, BIOL 1108L, BIOL 3300 and BIOL 3300L

Cellular function and genetic principles from an experimental point of view. Emphasis will be placed on the functional interactions among cellular substructures, regulation of cellular biosynthetic activity, regulation of sub-cellular transport, and evaluation of experimental data.

BIOL 4411: Stem Cell Technology

  • 3 Class Hours, 3 Laboratory Hours, 4 Credit Hours
  • Prerequisite: Grade of “C” or better in BIOL 3300 and BIOL 3300L 

Stem cells offer great promise for modern medicine. This course gives students hands-on experience in handling, differentiating, analyzing and purifying stem cells in culture. Students will also gain a broad understanding of in vivo stem cells, including the developmental aspects of cellular self-renewal and tissue regeneration. This is a lab intensive course and will feature in-lab lectures, a formal written component, and in-class presentations.

BIOL 7300: Research Methods Across Biology

  • 3 Class Hours 3 Laboratory Hours 4 Credit Hours
  • Prerequisite: Admission and enrollment in the Master of Science in Integrative Biology program.

Biological disciplines are diverse and require various and specialized techniques that have become essential to the process of scientific inquiry. This course introduces graduate students to diverse research methods and literature as used in the various biological disciplines such as ecology, cell biology, genetics, physiology, zoology, botany and microbiology. Activities in the course may include, but are not limited to, lectures on research strategy and tactics, experimental design and technology, and use of statistical methods. Use of various research methods will be supported through review of the scientific literature, and possibly demonstration.
