CSB 497H1S/498Y1Y/499Y1Y Poster Session
This year’s CSB 497/498/499 Poster Session will be on Thursday, 6 April, from 1-3 p.m. in the basement of Ramsay Wright in Room 010. Students will be presenting posters of the independent research they have been engaged in this academic year. Everyone is invited to attend. It is a great way to learn about the work our students are doing. To read the abstracts of this year’s posters, please click here.

International Experience: CSB is working with the Centre for International Experience (CIE) to support our students in doing CSB research abroad and/or to do an exchange year. If you are interested, please visit the CIE website for information about the entire program. If you would like to talk to someone in CSB about your course options and how they fit into your CSB program, please contact either Prof. Melanie Woodin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Janet Mannone at email@example.com. We will be creating a space on this website dedicated to the international experience. Please visit it for updates.
to undergraduate studies in the Department of Cell and Systems Biology. We are a large and diverse department that can provide a wide variety of offerings in cell biology, molecular biology, animal and plant developmental biology and physiology.
We offer 45 courses covering topics such as endocrine physiology, introductory virology, cell adhesion and migration, bioinformatics methods and plant-microorganism interactions. Our foundation courses in cell, molecular and developmental biology, and physiology provide fundamental concepts in each area along with essential skills in modern laboratory techniques. As students move into our upper-level courses, they encounter courses that are more specialized and provide training in advanced concepts and state of the art techniques in research. Our 400-level courses often have small enrollments allowing for a more personal experience. Many of these courses are seminar based which allows students to present research data, actively participate in discussions that are fundamental to their studies and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different experimental approaches. Students are also encouraged to conduct their own research through our independent project courses where they work one-on-one in a professor’s laboratory. These courses will develop your abilities in evaluating data and critical thinking.
Our courses have been arranged into a number of academic programs: Animal Physiology, Cell and Molecular Biology, and Developmental Biology. These programs provide students with a comprehensive education in these areas of specialization. In addition, the Department contributes to the interdepartmental specialist program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. We also offer programs in Biology jointly with the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Genome Biology jointly with EEB and the Department of Molecular Genetics. More detailed information about each of these programs and program forms are available by clicking on the program name in the menu.
