BMS 225A Human Disease: Technologies & Biomedical Applications
This course introduces students to concepts in organ and tissue biology and to tools used in biomedical research. The aim is to prepare students for research in understanding human biology and disease. The course includes lectures and workshops that encompass this material. A series of lectures illustrate how tissues and organs function in the context of the whole organism, and how dysfunction leads to disease. Included in these lectures are examples of how a variety of model organisms can advance our understanding both of basic biology and of human illness. In addition, the course provides an opportunity through lectures and workshops for students to become familiar with microscopy methods and applications as well as with central techniques for understanding the genome, epigenome, proteome, and protein structure.
