New undergraduate course about science fiction and stem cells

USC is pleased to introduce a new undergraduate course starting in Spring 2015 called MEDS 380 Stem Cells: Fact and Fiction. From babies born with three biological parents to regrown body parts, the course explores the current state of stem cell biology as it closes the gap between reality and the sci fi visions of authors such as Margaret Atwood and Philip K. Dick. USC Stem Cell researcher and professor Gage Crump calls MEDS 380 “a mad scientist type of course, where we go through some real science but also [think] about what’s the future of science.”
