10 Who takes quantitative bioelectricity for no credit? a final year medical student from Brazil... here to brush up on some of the Biophysics in Maryland, doing research in the area of cardiac bioelectricity. I took a similar course during grad school but when I saw that the course is offered by Dr. Barr, pioneer of the field, I wanted to hear about it from the master himself. from China, now a bio med engineering undergrad at Boston University from Colorado. I have been in nursing for 20 years now and have a great interest in bio-electricity as it relates to the cardiac muscle! finishing high school. Biology has always fascinated me so I'm choosing my future studies through coursera, bioelectricity might be the one to go for :)! a vet from Spain interested in neurobiology a freelance Technical writer for healthcare, communications, customer service, and business an electrophysiologist and a full-time working mother with a young baby, so I don't expect to be competitive but to enjoy whatever I can learn
