Immunology Biol 348 Evolution of innate and adaptive immune defenses. Development and function of the immune system in animals. The immune response in health and disease. Techniques in immunology with a focus on flow cytometry. Lab Required. Offered Spring Semester
Controversies in Biology Biol 111 Course for first-year students who are not science majors. Lectures introduce students to basic biology and biochemistry in order to better understand controversial topics such as animal research, genetic testing, human cloning, stem cell therapy, and the teaching of creationism. Required weekly discussion sections allow students to apply the principles learned in lecture to explore these topics. Offered Fall Semester
Biology of Cancer Biol 304 An advanced biology class covering the cellular and molecular causes and treatments of cancer. An emphasis is placed on fundamental mechanisms of molecular biology, cell biology, and signal transduction. Critical reading and discussion of the scientific literature is also required. Offered Fall Semester
Cell Biology Biol 352 Covers biomembranes, cell growth patterns, cell signaling, the cytoskeleton, cell organelles, and microscopic technique. Laboratory includes experience with cell culture. Lab required.
Introduction to Molecules and Cells Biol 205 An introductory course which focuses on the molecular biology of cells. Basic biochemical processes, cellular and subcellular structure and function are emphasized. First core course for Biology majors and Cell Biology/Biochemistry Majors. Lab required.

UV Treatment Trial for WNS in the News

Two recent articles have highlighted the work we are doing with Dan Lindner and Jon Palmer at the US Forest Service: Battling a Deadly Bat Fungus in Chemical & Engineering News Bats May Be Poised for a Comeback From White-Nose Syndrome in Sierra Hopefully we will have something to report from that study soon!

Three new papers published!

First, our study of the immune response in little brown bats infected with P. destructans came out in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. Second, our paper describing the differences in how WNS affects susceptible little brown bats and resistant big brown bats was just published in Journal of Comparative Physiology B. Third, our paper that shows the changes in gene expression when P. destructans is infecting bats compared to when it grows in culture is in press at Virulence. Exciting times for the Bucknell bat lab!

Frontiers in Zoology paper in the news!

Our first paper studying the remnant bat populations that are persisting in the face of white-nose syndrome has been covered all over the news, thanks to an excellent article written by Michael Hill of the Associated Press. Here are a few of the links (of about 1,080 results as of Apr 13, according to Google): CBS News The Enterprise News in Brief
