The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry intends to offer the following graduate courses during the Fall 2017 semester which might not be staffed by full-time faculty members as part of their normal teaching load. In accordance with section 54-07 of the 2014-2017 Collective Agreement, the department invites applications from suitably qualified individuals who are interested in teaching the following courses.

Biochemistry & Cell Biology – Lipids & Membranes 03-59-675-01
This course focuses on the biochemistry and cell biology of lipids and their role in cellular signaling, with a particular emphasis on the experimental basis of current knowledge. Topics covered include lipid biochemistry, membrane biophysics, the biochemistry and metabolism of small molecules such as steroids and leukotrienes, and an integrative assessment of the role of lipids and membranes in cellular processes such as protein trafficking and intracellular signaling. (Enrolment restricted to MMB students.)

Biotechnology Entrepreneurship 03-59-690-01
Entrepreneurship in Biotechnology will provide students an introduction to the complexities and unique problems facing the biotechnology industry. Students will be exposed to the topics most critical for successfully founding, financing and operating a life science company, and will be expected to perform many of the same tasks that founders would normally undertake. Discussions with life-science entrepreneurs, evaluation of existing biotechnology firms, case studies based on recent companies and hands-on work developing entrepreneurial endeavors all will be utilized. (Enrolment restricted to MMB students.) (Equivalent to 2 courses.)
