Alicia Lyle, PhD, Course Director

The goal of the Principles and Practice of Molecular Biology in Medicine course is to acquaint postdoctoral research fellows with most common molecular biology techniques that are available for biomedical research and to bring all fellows from a range of research backgrounds to the same level with respect to scientific approaches and methods. At the end of this course, all research fellows should be able to select the appropriate techniques to best test their research questions and hypotheses and to appropriately design experiments to incorporate proper controls.

Organization of lectures

Each lecture will include a description of the methodology being presented, the strengths and weaknesses of the approach being used, as well as examples of successful use of the techniques from the literature. Each lecture will be posted on a site to be determined (possibly Blackboard).
