Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology

William J. Anderson, PhD, Senior Lecturer on Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, Harvard University., Harvard Extension School

We are entering a new era in which a fundamental understanding of developmental biology and regeneration will play a critical role. In this course, embryonic and adult stem cells in different organisms are examined in terms of their molecular, cellular, and potential therapeutic properties. Genetic reprogramming and cloning of animals are critically evaluated. Ethical and political considerations are also considered.
Prerequisites: BIOS E-1a and BIOS E-1b or the equivalent; knowledge of cell, molecular, or developmental biology is recommended. (4 credits)
