Projects in Electron Microscopy BIL 555
Individual research projects in electron microscopy.
Instructor: Dr.Jeffrey Prince
Office: Cox 20
Meeting Time and Place:By arrangement; Cox 20B.
In Depth Course Description:
Students conduct individual research projects selected by them or
suggested by the instructor and may involve research areas of interest to other faculty members in the Biology Department
or faculty at the Medical School. Students work out the appropriate fixation
protocol for their study
and use the electron microscope to visualize cellular changes caused by
their experimental manipulation or the
cellular characteristics particular to their tissue or organism. The class
meets once a week to discuss individual progress and any problems with
particular projects or with equipment in the laboratory. Students present two formal
progress reports each semester; one at mid semester (oral only) and the
other during finals (oral and written).
Admission to the course is only through permission of
the instructor. This course is open only to students who have taken BIL
554, Electron Microscopy.
