S681: Stem Cells and Cardiology in Splash Spring 2021 (Mar. 13, 2021)
Many believe that the cures to most diseases lie in stem cell science and research, yet others fear repercussions that could forever alter our social conscience and morality. This class takes students on a journey inside the stem cell revolution and its intersection with cardiology, where perspectives from scientists, researchers, policy-makers, and ethicists will challenge students to consider the societal, political, even spiritual implications of this rapidly developing frontier. How do we use stem cells to treat cardiac problems? Let's find out!

S553: Introduction to Cardiology in Splash Spring 19 (Mar. 16, 2019)
According to the CDC, more than 600,000 people in the United States die each year from heart-related diseases, making it the leading cause of death for both men and women. Cardiovascular disease is a result of the gradual buildup of plaque or fatty material within the arterial walls leading to heart attacks. However, most cardiovascular diseases are preventable by addressing risk factors such as poor and unhealthy diets, smoking, environmental hazards, and limited physical activity. The heart is one of the most vital organs required for human life and has very complex structures and mechanisms that enable blood circulation throughout the body. This course aims to introduce interested students from all backgrounds the fundamentals of the heart. In particular, we will cover its respective anatomy and physiology, learn related diseases and their impacts in public health, and explore exciting on-going research fields.
