BIOL 446 - Pathogenic Microbiology

Units: 3
Molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of microorganisms in mammalian hosts, including regulation of common and pathogen-specific virulence determinants, modulation of host processes and immune evasion processes.

Prerequisites: BIOL 330.
Possible Instructional Methods: Entirely On-ground.
Grading: A-F grading only.
Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
  1. Relate basic concepts of medical microbiology to molecular mechanisms of infectious diseases in humans;
  2. Identify and discuss fundamental similarity and divergences in the molecular mechanisms of microbial pathogenic processes;
  3. Apply concepts of microbial evolution, gene regulation, and resistance development to the microbes’ ability to survive and/or cause disease in the host;
  4. Synthesize, integrate and effectively communicate scientific information both in writing and orally;
  5. Assess the past and potential future social implications of microbial pathogenesis research.
