Preference to freshmen.

3 units | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci, WAY-SMA | Class # 1877 | Section 01 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit | ISF
01/07/2019 - 03/15/2019 Wed 2:30 PM - 4:20 PM at E.D. Stone Edwards Bldg R358 with Bouley, D. (PI)
Instructors: Bouley, D. (PI)
Notes: Introductory Seminar. Preference to first-year students; sophomores admitted if space available. Advance sign-up process and deadlines at http://introsems.stanford.edu.

Emphasis is on a comparative approach to anatomy and physiology of a wide range of mammals, the unique adaptations of each species in terms of its anatomical, and behavioral characteristics, and how these species interact with human beings and other animals. Dissection required. Class size is limited to 16.

Donna Bouley, DVM, PhD, Professor received her D.V.M. from the University of Tennessee and received her Ph.D. in 1995 in Comparative and Experimental Medicine (University of Tennessee) studying the immunopathology of Herpetic Stromal Keratitis in mouse models. She obtained Diplomate status in the American College of Veterinary Pathologists in 1996, and served on the faculty at Texas A & M CVM until recruited to the Department of Comparative Medicine at Stanford in 1997. She is the Director of Necropsy Services for the VSC, and her collaborative research interests include phenotypic characterization of genetically engineered mice, host-pathogen interactions, and pathology of minimally invasive cancer treatments. Dr. Bouley founded and mentors Stanford’s community of Pre-vets and because of her extraordinary contributions to undergraduate education and to the quality of student life, was honored in 2007 as the Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel recipient, and in 2011 was appointed as the Kleinheinz Family Fellow in the Bass University Fellows in Undergraduate Education Program.

COMPMED 89Q: Ouch it Hurts! The Comparative Neurobiology of Pain

Preference to sophomores; first-year students admitted if space available.            Check out our All Quarters Courses too!

3 units | Class # 1998 | Section 01 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit | ISS       
01/07/2019 - 03/15/2019 Tue, Thu 9:00 AM - 10:20 AM at E.D. Stone Edwards Bldg R358 with Pacharinsak, C. (PI)
Instructors: Pacharinsak, C. (PI)
Notes: Introductory Seminar. Advance sign-up process and deadlines at http://introsems.stanford.edu.

Focus is on understanding the basic neurobiology of pain pathways. Topics include the physiology, pharmacology, and clinical aspects of effective pain management. In both humans and animals pain is part of the protective mechanisms that prevent further injury to the body. However, if the pain process continues unchecked, it can become extremely detrimental.

Cholawat Pacharinsak, DVM, PhD is a veterinary anesthesiologist, an assistant professor, and the director of Anesthesia, Pain Management, and Surgery in the Department of Comparative Medicine, Stanford School of Medicine. He has a PhD in pain neuroscience, and is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia (DACVAA). His research interests include understanding the neurobiology of cancer pain and acute pain models using behavioral and electrophysiological techniques. He also focuses on how to control pain effectively in a clinical setting.

COMPMED 202: Research Biomethodology for Laboratory Animal Science

2 units | Class # 10877 | Section 01 | Grading: Medical Satisfactory/No Credit | SEM                Check out our All Quarters Courses too!
09/24/2018 - 12/07/2018 Fri 9:30 AM - 10:20 AM at RAF 1 with Pacharinsak, C. (PI)
Instructors: Pacharinsak, C. (PI)
Notes: Please contact faculty member to sign up.

Emphasis is on providing introductory training and practical, hands-on workshops for students interested in learning more about research biomethodology and animal models of human and animal disease. Topics include basic care and principals guiding the use of research animals, animal health and welfare, and research animal enrichment, basic mouse handling, rodent breeding, and the principals of rodent surgery and anesthesia. Content delivered online and in-person.
