Y.A. Ren.

This course offers students who have already obtained fundamental knowledge in reproductive biology an opportunity to gain in-depth understanding of specific topics in reproductive science and technology. This course also aims to advance students’ skill in critical thinking and assessing of literature, as well as in formulating hypotheses in emerging research areas of reproductive biology. Examples of topics covered in this course include central nervous system control of reproduction, gametogenesis, sex differentiation, ovarian biology, uterine function, placental biology, reproductive immunity and infertility. 

Outcome 1: Students will be able to describe the molecular and cellular basis of specific topics in reproductive biology.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to interpret primary reproductive biology literature, theorize new avenues of research that apply to this work, and research plans to investigate hypotheses put forth in discussions and with independent exploration that incorporate physiology, endocrinology, cell biology and molecular biology to explain reproductive processes.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to recognize emerging reproductive technologies that relate to neuroendocrine control of reproduction, gametogenesis, ovarian physiology, early embryogenesis, uterine function, placental biology and fetal development.
