SU receives teaching grant to develop stem-cell undergraduate course
Daylong event examines culture, technology, and law of sound sampling
The grant is part of a 10-year, New York State initiative to advance stem cell science. Since the beginning of 2008, the state has allocated more than $165 million through the Empire State Stem Cell Board to support promising stem cell scientists in the development of new research, training, collaboration, and infrastructure.
John Russell, professor and chair of the Department of Biology in The College of Arts and Sciences, is the principle investigator on the grant. Russell will lead an interdisciplinary steering committee with faculty from SU and the State University of New York Upstate Medical University to develop a one-semester, three-credit undergraduate course at SU. The course will include discussions of the ethical, religious, social, and legal issues from a broad range of viewpoints, the role of the news media in the public debate of these issues, and how interest groups use the media to build cases for their points of view.
Taught by a team of faculty from across the University, the course will include lectures, assigned readings, case studies, and small group discussions all designed help students develop the critical analytical skills needed to address such complex issues.
