B2692: Stem Cells in Life & Disease in Splash! Spring 2013
An introductory survey of stem cell biology in multicellular organisms, including worms, flies, lizards, fish, mice, and, of course, humans. We'll breeze through basic biological principles, then move directly into "case studies" of how stem cells can be both the cause and cure of common diseases. Taught by Stanford PhD students in Cancer Biology.


B2399: Stem Cells in Life and Disease in Splash! Fall 2012
An introductory survey of stem cell biology in multicellular organisms, including worms, flies, lizards, fish, mice, and, of course, humans. We'll breeze through basic biological principles, then move directly into "case studies" of how stem cells can be both the cause and cure of common diseases. Taught by Stanford PhD students in Cancer Biology.


B1944: Stem Cells in Life and Disease in Splash! Spring 2012
An introduction to what stem cells are, how they are unique, and how they can be important in both causing and curing human diseases.


B2016: The World of Microbes: Bed Bugs, Germs, and other things you can't see! in Splash! Spring 2012
Microbes cover every surface of our planet - soil, forests, oceans, and even inside you and me! We are outnumbered. Some microbes are capable of mind control, fuel production, or survival at extreme temperatures. This course will cover what microbes are, where they live, how they survive, and, most importantly, why we care!


B1676: Stem Cells in Life and Disease - Immortality Inside You in Splash! Fall 2011
Stem cells keep us alive and help us heal throughout our lives, and in some cases they can even regrow entire organs. But when they don't act correctly, there can be serious consequences. Abnormal stem cells might be the cause for diseases ranging from Down syndrome to cancer. How does this happen? We'll cover the very basics about what stem cells are, why we need them, and how losing control over them can lead to serious health problems. Presented by Stanford Biology PhD students.


B1677: The World of Microbes - Bed bugs, germs and other things we can't see... in Splash! Fall 2011
Microbes cover every surface of our planet - soil, forests, oceans, and even inside you and me! We are outnumbered. Some microbes are capable of mind control, fuel production, or survival at extreme temperatures. This course will cover what microbes are, where they live, how they survive, and, most importantly, why we care!
