BIOS 40420 - Section 01: Medical Molecular Parasitology (CRN 14751)

Course Description:
Roughly 90% of the world's health care resources are spent on diseases that affect only 10% of the world's population. Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) are a group of diseases that cause substantial illness for more than one billion people globally. This course will explore the molecular biology and mechanisms of virulence of eukaryotic protozoan parasites that are major causes of human disease and misery in most countries of the tropics. The entry of molecular biology with its elucidation of the genetics, genomics and proteomics of these organisms has provided increasingly sophisticated explanations of their capacities to persist under intense ecological and physiological pressures. The students: (i) will gain a detailed understanding of the molecular biology of these organisms; (ii) will increase their ability to read scientific papers and (iii) will be able to analyze and discuss some of the molecular laboratory techniques presented during the course.
