This site provides a format for sharing materials, including lab protocols and class  activities and exercises that I have developed for my biology classes at Olin College. The courses include Principles of Modern Biology: Designing Better Drugs (a required, foundational course), and two advanced elective courses: Seminar in Immunology and Emerging Technologies in Cancer Research.  All courses include a laboratory component; however, the Designing Drugs lab is heavily scaffolded and detailed protocols are provided for the students (see Laboratory Procedures), whereas the elective courses include a laboratory component that is largely designed by the students with instructor guidance.

You can also find links to educational and research tools in the Biology resources tab and information about evaluating sources of biology and health information that is in the news or on websites in the Hype vs. Hope tab.
