Summer Sessions from Brandeis Precollege
Summer Residency on Women’s Health
Credit bearing (2 credits) for students who have completed the online Women's Health course. Non credit bearing for students who have completed AP Biology.
Diseases such as HPV, breast cancer, and Zika are global health concerns. Have you ever wondered why these diseases seem to impact women more often than men? How are they diagnosed and when? Vaccinations, screenings and treatments exist for some of these diseases, but are they effective? How do they work and what are the ethical concerns? In this residential course, we will explore the molecular, genetic, medical and clinical basis of several diseases impacting women’s health. We will conduct hands-on laboratories looking at viral structure and assembly, model clinical procedures for diagnosis, be visited by experts in the field, and begin to develop an understanding of how governmental policy is designed surrounding these concerns.
Students will live and learn on the Brandeis University campus, in Brandeis residence halls. The session will end with an individual capstone project. Students who complete both the online and residential portions of this course will be awarded two credits from Brandeis University.
Prerequisite: Women’s Biology and Wellness
Dates: July 10 – 17, 2022
