Course Coordinator: Dr. David Lillicrap
An in-depth perspective of the pathogenesis of human disease. An integration of the genetic, biochemical, physiologic, anatomic, and general etiologic factors which play a role in the progression of several specific diseases from inception to death or recovery. The course will comprise short introductory presentations by teaching faculty followed by the presentation and discussion of relevant scientific papers by students. Given jointly with PATH 826/3.0.
Only undergraduates with an excellent performance in the prerequisite courses will be considered.
Enrollment is limited. Offered in Winter Term.

PREREQUISITE PATH 310/3.0 and Level 4 and (registration in a LISC Major or Specialization Plan) and (a GPA of 2.5) or permission of the course coordinator.
This graduate level course is given jointly with PATH-430. It covers several diseases and integrates the genetic, biochemical, physiologic, anatomic, and general etiologic factors which play a role in the progression of each disease from its inception to death or recovery. The perspective will demonstrate that each disease is the result of an evolving interplay of genetic and environmental factors.
Additional work is prescribed for graduate students.
Prerequisites: PATH-310 or ANAT-311, BCHM-310, PHGY-212, or equivalents.
Class size is limited. Graduate Students are encouraged to register prior to 1 December. Half course; winter term. Course offered annually.
