Pathology 803: Pathogenesis of Major Human Diseases
This course will focus on diseases that are major causes of global
death and disability. Throughout the course, we will combine expert
clinicians, basic scientists, and literature review on specific
topics. For each major disease there will be three seminars. The
first seminar will introduce the human clinical features of the
disease. The next seminar will focus on experimental models to study
the disease pathogenesis. The last session will consist of small
groups reviewing primary research papers addressing disease pathogenesis
and discussing the leading disease model. This course will be a
core course in the Cellular and Molecular Pathology Graduate Program.
Currently. This is the first disease-based pathogenesis course offered
on campus. It will also serve as an invaluable "bridge course"
for MD or MD/PHD students interested in pursuing a career in research,
because it will provide them with the opportunity to learn about
research currently being conducted on a specific disease.
Lectures will be held between 9:55 and 10:45 am on Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays in the fall semester beginning fall 2004.
