PATH 250 - MOLECULAR MEDICINE

[3 Credits]
This lecture-based course examines how insights into the molecular pathophysiology of diseases can create opportunities for developing targeted therapies through a variety of interventions, including new drug development, gene therapy, and vaccines. The course introduces the student to the concepts and the vocabulary of contemporary molecular medicine, orients the student to the molecular mechanisms of important disease processes, and elucidates the role of fields such as genetics/epigenetics, bioinformatics, microarray and gene sequencing, nanotechnology, stem cell science, and pharmacogenomics in translational research.
