SPRING 2011 COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT BMS 894: Essentials of Stem Cell Biology (3 credits) Course Description: Therapeutic use of Human Stem Cells and their derivatives have raised great expectations for preventative and curative medicine while at the same time bringing to the fore, highly explosive issues dealing not only with biomedicine but also ethics, religion, politics, legal and social issues, etc. It is essential that every practitioner of any form of public health understand the benefits of such treatments as well as the potential risks and moral discomfiture people have with the use of this technology. Therefore, this course is one of great importance to the education of all Healthcare professionals. This is a course primarily designed for advanced students who have had courses in molecular and/or developmental biology (preferably both) and an interest in what may well prove to be the most beneficial breakthrough in the history of medicine.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
