Teaching and Mentoring
MMG plays a major role in teaching basic sciences to the first-year medical school class in the areas of biochemistry, microbiology, and genetics. Jim Bina is the Director for the Medical Microbiology course for the first year medical students; Bill Goins directs the Medical Microbiology Laboratory course, which also provides teaching opportunities for many of our PhD students; Martin Schmidt directs the Fuel Metabolism course, while Saleem Khan leads the Medical Genetics course. Nearly all MMG faculty participate in the first-year medical school curriculum, giving lectures and serving as facilitators for problem-based learning in small group sessions.
