HMB360H1: Neurogenomics


This course covers two main themes: Emerging gene or cell-based therapies to treat neurological disorders and genome engineering tools and techniques to investigate both normal and abnormal brain function. Topics may include cell reprogramming & stem cell technologies, brain organoids & tissue engineering, emerging genome engineering approaches to treat neurodegenerative diseases and behavioural disorders, and optogenetics to probe neural circuit function. Tutorials emphasize critical analysis of primary research.
