The Program in Interdisciplinary Biological and Biomedical Sciences at UNM is a cross-departmental, college and institutional collaboration of students and faculty interested in interdisciplinary biological research

Seminar in Interdisciplinary Biology and Biological Science (SiBBs) Spring 2015

PiBBs Suite-Castetter 1424, Wed 3-5:30   Syllabus (pdf)

This course deliberately exposes students to multiple possible role models. It is centered around seminar presentations and in-depth discussions with invited speakers, some from UNM, SFI, and LANL, but most from other institutions. Students are expected to take a leadership role in nominating, hosting, and interacting with visiting scientists.

This course addresses the cognitive and social aspects of learning where students expand their intellectual horizons by interacting intensively with visiting and resident faculty and their fellow students. Because content varies each semester, it can be repeated for credit. (Spring, 3 credits)


Students will each host a guest speaker. Host Tools Packet (.doc or .pdf)
