GHHE 000/7120 - Contemporary Issues in Infectious Disease (3 cr.)



Description
Microbial agents are among the most adaptive organisms that precipitate diseases. Because of this rapid adaptation they pose a challenge to effective therapy. This course explores contemporary microbial challenges such as HIV, West Nile Virus, HPV, multi-drug resistant TB, malaria and MRSA. Therapeutic strategies, whether through vaccination or new drug development, will be discussed through a case study approach and reading of current literature.
