UA BSC Students, Brucker Nourse and Lacey Kennedy, author commentaries on new animal models on neurological disease as an outcome of graduate course

As part of a graduate level course (BSC 666) at The University of Alabama taught by Prof. Guy Caldwell) on current topics related to use of animal and cellular model systems in studies of human disease, students were assigned papers in press at the scientific journal, Disease Models and Mechanisms to write previews that would highlight findings of these selected articles.  The top two graded commentaries were shared with the journal’s staff, who interacted with the students in an editorial capacity, and then published online.
