Teaching resources

I have taught a variety of courses, including Cellular and Molecular Biology, Vertebrate Physiology, Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience, Systems Neuroscience, Neurodegenerative Diseases, and Introductory Biology Laboratory.


Here's some links to useful tools that I've developed with CPP's eLearning team (mainly Erick Zelaya) for teaching cellular/molecular biology over the years:

  • Learning about how transcription is regulated using drag-and-drop transcription factors and repressors:

  • Learning the parts of a gene and how they are arranged in DNA and RNA:

  • Learning about common post-translational modifications and on which amino acids they can occur:

  • Overview of cellular signaling pathways (GPCR, RTK, and nuclear):



Here's some other web-based tools that I find very useful in teaching cell/mol biology, physiology, and neuroscience:

For teaching circadian rhythms, this is a great introduction to the actogram way of plotting activity and experimenting with light pulses, etc:

Great tool for visualizing ion channel opening on an axon:
