Spring 2020 syllabus.
We offer a class each spring titled Community-Based Cancer Research Presentations and Discussions (BIOMS 5665). This is one course of the 4 course curriculum that leads to a Graduate Certificate of Engagement in Public Communication of Science & Technology.
One speaker noted that the class is perhaps the most diverse class at Cornell – we have community members with cancer, family members, doctoral students in the basic sciences, premeds, health administration students, bioengineering students, and more. Special considerations for community members and students in the class
The class meets on Wednesday Evenings from 5:15 – 6:30 and offers a combination of guest lectures, student presentations, and sessions on science communication.
Here are examples of blogs written by students in the class:
- The Lymphatic Vasculature as a Double Agent in Cancer Progression (Garrett Beeghly)
- Eat More Ketchup (Wendy Zhuo)
- Artificial Intelligence and Cancer (Alec Sun)
