QSB 223: Human Parasitology
Covers the biology, parasitism and pathogenesis of parasites that cause significant human disease—the parasitic helminthes and the protozoan parasites. How each parasite establishes infection in their hosts, how it spreads between hosts, and the pathogenesis of disease. Current approaches to control parasitic disease will be addressed. Cutting edge science with a focus on new molecular concepts will be addressed during an additional one hour lecture/discussion session specifically for graduate students.
Prerequisite: Quantitative and Systems Biology majors only. Normal Letter Grade only. Discussion Included.
