Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

Most diseases emerge due to a relative small number of biological effects, including mechanisms like infection, inflammation, neoplasia, genetic mutation, protein misfolding, and metabolic disregulation. Students learn about disease-state biology by focusing on these broad disease pathways. The course consists of several modules, each focused on one broad class of disease mechanism, and includes both a discussion of the underlying biology of the disease pathway as well as examples of specific diseases that involve those mechanisms. This course complements the training in fundamental normal-state biology students are already receiving by providing a mechanism-centered view of disease development.
