The Biological & Biomedical Science (BBS) session of the Yale Young Global Scholars Program emphasizes the study of biological processes and their applications. Students will explore interdisciplinary scientific disciplines such as epidemiology, biochemistry, neuroscience, ecology, and systems biology. If you have asked yourself any of the following (or related) questions, you will probably be interested in the BBS session.What is the relationship of biological systems on the cellular, system, organismic and societal level?Can knowing an individual’s genetic makeup improve their medical care?Can novel biological organisms be created in a dish?Can the mind ever be understood by studying the brain?How do the microbes in our digestive system affect our health?Students will attend lectures by Yale faculty, as well as smaller, more intimate seminars taught by Yale undergraduate and graduate students. Over the course of the two-week program, students will also work in Capstone project groups to identify problems in a specific topic, conduct rigorous background research, and propose solutions to those problems to their peers and instructors.
