Anatomy and Physiology Spring 2016

We are happy to announce that MCB 246, Human Anatomy and Physiology II lecture, will be unrestricted for the spring. This is a departure from what we have done in the past. No wait list is necessary to register for the course.

There will still be a wait list for MCB 247, Human Anatomy and Physiology II lab.  Please go to http://go.illinois.edu/mcb247_SP16_waitlist and fill out the appropriate information if you need a seat in the lab.  You will be emailed once you have been authorized for the course with registration instructions.  Section changes may not be allowed until registration ends on November 20, so please choose your sections carefully.

New Course on Aging and Disability

Looking for more Advanced Hours for your LAS graduation requirement?  Consider this new CHLH course.

In the Spring 2015 semester I will be teaching a new course entitled ‘Aging With Disability.’  This course will focus on the psychological and physical changes persons with disabilities face as they age.  In addition, this course examines the impact that aging with disability has on the US healthcare system, legislation and healthcare professionals.  For students interested in healthcare related fields or disability related issues, this 400 level course provides an interesting investigation into this growing topic.

For Spring 2015, the course will be offered as a Special Topics Course: CHLH 494.  The class will be held on Tuesdays/Thursday from 1 – 2:20 pm. The CRN is 62581.

Research Position for Spring

Undergraduate Research Position for Spring

The Blanke Laboratory is seeking talented undergraduates to conduct research. The goal of this position is to provide opportunities for an undergraduate to learn how to conduct research; therefore, this position is time demanding with high expectations, and is best suited for an undergraduate interested in pursuing graduate school (either a masters or PhD), preferentially in microbiology or cell biology.

The research project will investigate the molecular pathogenesis of infectious disease. The experience will provide students with the skills necessary to plan and perform experiments, and collect and interpret data. Laboratory skills that the students will practice include standard molecular biology techniques, bacterial culturing, protein purification, biochemical analytical procedures, and working with cell culture based systems. Depending on the exact direction of the project, students may choose to pursue other methodologies as well.

If interested, please contact Robin Holland (rhollan2@illinois.edu) for questions or to schedule an interview. The position will begin as early as possible in the spring semester (so students may be registered for MCB 290 for the spring semester), so please contact before Monday, January 26th to schedule an interview.
