MIIM 513S Molecular Pathogenesis II 3.0 Credits

Designed to convey basic concepts concerning the molecular mechanisms of disease caused by pathogenic microorganisms. Utilizes information derived from in vitro and in vivo model systems as well as studies performed in humans to enhance understanding of diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. The immune response and other host defense mechanisms will also be examined. The course is designed to complement the first year graduate core curriculum and will strive to develop analytical thought processes. Students learn to identify gaps in knowledge, formulate important and experimentally approachable questions, and develop sound hypotheses to direct the generation of new scientific discoveries. The development of sound specific aims and experimental design will also be emphasized.
