CHEM 314C - Biochemistry at the Bar

Spring (1) Staff Prereq/Corequisite(s): CHEM 314 

With the recent sequencing of the human genome, increasing prevalence of various diseases and disorders including cancer, Alzheimer's, etc., and advancing sophistication of numerous biotechnologies, new social and ethical responsibilities fall upon the scientist. This 1-credit supplement AND Biochemistry 314 course fulfills the COLL 200 requirement, and aims to "reach-out" beyond the science and put the responsibilities of the biochemist on trial. Through the integration science with the fields of philosophy, law, and government, this course aims to produce a "global scientist." Drawing from multiple sources including film, current events, and guest lectures students will be afforded a holistic perspective on science in society and the implications of biochemical research. This class must be taken concurrently with CHEM 314: Biochemistry; however will result in an independent grade.
