In this course, students will study the molecular genetics of inherited disease in humans. Students will use and build on foundational knowledge to gain a broad and deep understanding of the genetic, molecular, cellular and physiological basis for disease. Using individual critical thinking and combined team work, students will discover what is currently known about particular inherited diseases, what are the gaps in our understanding of disease, and will identify barriers to progress in disease treatment. Students will integrate and apply lower divisions course knowledge and further build critical thinking skills by engaging in challenging biomedical topics.
