F1130: Biology: Very, Very, Complex Chemistry in Sprout Summer 2014 (Jul. 12 - Aug. 02, 2014)
Biology is biology, and chemistry is chemistry.. right? The human brain has a tendency to group things into categories. In most cases, this is beneficial, but when it comes to scientific research, it can really impair one's thinking! Come see how some extremely important biomedical advances were made when people were able to tear down these categorical barriers.


S977: Biology: Very, Very, Complex Chemistry in Splash Spring 14 (Mar. 29, 2014)
The human brain has a tendency to always group things as one thing or another. In school, it's always "Biology" or "Chemistry." Scientists have realized that this is incorrect, and this insight has led to many very cool discoveries in medicine! This course will teach you that it's not always one or the other, and that this insight can fundamentally change one's perception of what's possible.
