Cardiovascular Muscle Biology and Disease

Course Prefix: 
Course Number: 

This course is geared towards obtaining knowledge and quantitative insights in the molecular and integrative biology of muscle with an emphasis on cardiac muscle and the heart.  It will focus on the molecular mechanisms that underlie the function and plasticity of muscle, including mechanisms of disease.  In addition to lectures, the course will promote critical thinking and analysis skills by reading and analyzing primary research articles. Graduate-level requirements include writing a research proposal that addresses an unresolved area in muscle biology (to be selected from a list of research articles provided at the beginning of the semester).
