[S21 (Virtual)] CHEM 124: Introduction of General, Organic and Biochemistry II (3 credits): Text Book: Fundamentals of General, Organic and Biological Chemistry by McMurry, Ballantine, Hoeger and Peterson (7th Edition)
[S23, S21 (Virtual), S20 (Virtual), S19, S18, S17, S16, S15 & S13] CHEM 438/638: Comprehensive Biochemistry II (4 credits): Text Book: Biochemistry by Garrett and Grisham (5th Edition)
[F22, F20 (Virtual), F19, F18, F17, F16 & F15] CHEM 490/684: Special Topics for Chemistry – Molecular Imaging for Drug Discovery (3 credits): This class is designed for students who are interested in learning how chemical and biochemical concepts are integrated to explore biological processes in cellular contents and further how such advanced knowledge is incorporated to develop high-throughput screening assays for novel drug discovery. The class will not only introduce the fundamentals of biochemical concepts conventionally applied in biochemistry but also present their recent applications in life sciences and translational medicine. *Note that this class include hands-on laboratory activities, covering from mammalian cell culture to fluorescence microscopy.
[F13 & S12] CHEM 490/684: Special Topics for Chemistry – Cellular Biochemistry (3 credits): This class is designed for students who are interested in learning how chemical and biochemical concepts are innovatively integrated to explore biological processes in cellular contents. The class will not only introduce the fundamentals of biochemical concepts conventionally applied in biochemistry but also further present their recent applications in molecular and cellular biology. Students will appreciate learning how specific biochemical reactions in solution have been successfully applied in complicated heterogenic cellular systems. Students will learn how both chemistry and biology meet together and thus how such interdisciplinary approaches provide new insights in science and even lead paradigm shifts for future science. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be capable of critically reading, analyzing and evaluating literature and further proposing corollary aims to advance respective research topics by designing optimal experimental platforms. Instruction will be in both lecture and seminar format, with emphasis on recent literatures.
[S20, S19, S18, S16, S15 & S14] MBIC 709 or GPLS 709: Advanced Biochemistry (2 lectures): This class is designed for graduate students who enrolled in the graduate program in life sciences (GPILS) program at University of Maryland School of Medicine. The main topic of discussion is the role of metabolic complexes in metabolic regulation in human cells.
