|Subject Overview:|| |
The material in this subject is directly integrated with and follows on from 531-301 Cellular Basis of Disease. It forms a core group of lectures to be taken by students enrolled in 531-304 and 531-305. This unit will expand and deepen the study of disease processes and their investigation; the genetic and molecular causes and results of these processes will be considered under the following theme headings: immunological disease, neurological disease, neoplasia, genetic disease and gene therapy. The lectures will focus on questions under investigation in current areas of research related to these topics.
|Assessment:||Two multiple choice question tests during the semester (20% each); a 3-hour written examination in the examination period (60%).|
|Prescribed Texts:||References to current scientific journal articles will be given during the lectures.|
|Breadth Options:|| |
