Predoctoral and postoctoral trainees appointed on the Training Program in Neurobehavioral Genetics are required to participate in (3) courses. Predoctoral trainees will be expected to register, while postdoctoral trainees will be expected to audit.
To confirm if a course is being offered, please check the Schedule of Classes published by the UCLA Registrar's Office.
NS215 (Current Research Topics in Neurobehavioral Genetics) is focused on the following:
Every other week, a team of 1-2 predoctoral trainees and 1 postdoctoral trainee will be expected to prepare a presentation based on assigned readings related to an upcoming Integrative Center for Neurobehavioral Genetics seminar (see calendar here).
This course is offered every Winter Quarter.
NS240 (Phenotypic Measurement of Complex Traits) revolves around an Integrative approach to understanding gene to behavior pathways by examination of levels of phenotype expression across systems (cell, brain, organism), across species (invertebrate, fly, mouse, human), and throughout development across varying environmental milieus. Although a background in human genetics is not required, it will be helpful.
This course is offered every other Fall Quarter.
MIMG C234 (Ethics and Accountability in Biomedical Research) covers topics of scientific integrity and ethics. Per NOT-OD-10-019, reflection on responsible conduct of research should recur throughout a scientist’s career: at the undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, predoctoral, postdoctoral, and faculty levels. Institutional training programs and individual fellows/scholars are strongly encouraged to consider how to optimize instruction in responsible conduct of research for the particular career stage(s) of the individual(s) involved. Instruction must be undertaken at least once during each career stage, and at a frequency of no less than once every four years.
This course is offered every Spring Quarter.
