Self-Paced Courses

In this class, students will be introduced to the mathematical operations conducted in the study of vaccine safety and efficacy.

Math of Vaccine Science

Students will explore the way biological cells use chemical "signals," genetic "codes," and "programs" in ways that are significantly different from digital computing processes. Even very simple organisms like slime mold can make creative and adaptive use of error, by, for example, over-generalizing similar signs (as with molecular mimicry) and by associating two signs that are arbitrarily linked in space/time (similar to Pavlovian conditioning). Such learning processes follow a kind of poetic logic and are more complex than the selectionist/connectionist learning approaches of AI. Throughout the course, readings in science will be supplemented by literary works by authors who have insight into creative processes and the complexity of nature.

Perils of Coding Humans

In this course, you will be introduced to the principles and practice of inferential statistics in action, including key principles of distributional assumptions, random samples, randomization, parametric and non-parametric statistical hypothesis testing, statistical power, measuring association & correlation, comparing means between two and among two or more populations, and introductory regression theory and practice.

Applied Biostatistics

Amaze and astound your friends and family! This course will teach you to analyze any DNA, RNA or protein sequence and run analyses on it to determine any sequence's identify, function, structure, and relationships via comparisons with other nucleotide sequences.


This course is a discussion of readings on the special topics of medical ethics, informed consent and human rights.

Medical Ethics

This course is the second of two courses designed to teach the public the fundamentals of biology.

Bio B

This course is the first of two courses designed to teach the public the fundamentals of biology.

Bio A

Students will learn via readings of primary literature facts about the history of the impact of vaccines on human health. This course will provide a solid basis of facts and realities of vaccines. Students will be able to use this knowledge in public discourse on vaccines in their personal lives and in interactions with others in the public square.

Vaccine Course

In a series of live online presentations and discussions, students will learn the fundamentals of environmental toxicology and become well-informed and primed for discussions in the public sphere. There will be recommended readings, additional recommended videos, recommended books.
