MICRO 289 - Molecular Pathogenesis of Infectious Diseases II


3 Credits

An advanced study of the mechanisms whereby bacteria and viruses cause infectious disease. The interactions between these pathogens and the host will be examined in detail utilizing various animal and human models. Pathogenesis will be presented ecologically following the events of the pathogen’s entry into the host, its encounters with the host, its encounters with the host’s defense mechanisms, strategies employed by the bacteria and viruses to counteract host defenses and to spread throughout the host, mechanisms of cell and tissue damage, etc. Emphasis will be placed on the molecular aspects of virulence factors and host defenses.
