BIOE 10N Form and Function of Animal Skeletons (ME 10N)
Preference to freshmen. The biomechanics and mechanobiology of the musculoskeletal system in human beings and other vertebrates on the level of the whole organism, organ systems, tissues, and cell biology. Field trips to labs.
BIOE 32Q Bon App├ętit, Marie Curie! The Science Behind Haute Cuisine
This seminar is for anyone who loves food, cooking or science! We will focus on the science and biology behind the techniques and the taste buds. Not a single lecture will pass by without a delicious opportunity - each weekly meeting will include not only lecture, but also a lab demonstration and a chance to prepare classic dishes that illustrate that day's scientific concepts.

BIOE 36Q The Biophysics of Innate Immunity
The innate immune system provides our first line of defense against disease--bothninfections, and cancer. Innate immune effectors such as host defense peptides arendeployed by numerous cell types (for instance neutrophils, macrophages, NK cells,nepithelial cells and keratinocytes) and work by biophysical mechanisms of action. The ourse draws from the primary literature and covers the evolution, st.... More Description for BIOE 36Q
