GHHE 000/5410 - Biomarkers: Exposure, Susceptibility, Effects and Efficacy (3 cr.)



Description
This course surveys the discovery and utility of biochemical and molecular biological indicators, or molecular metrics, for the characterization and diagnosis of exposure to etiological factors, genetic risk, deleterious effects of animate and inanimate pathogens and the successful intervention using pharmacotherapeutics. Relying on an understanding of basic principles of physiology, cell biology, cell signaling and molecular biology, the course capitalizes on state-of-the-art literature and case studies to illustrate the use of molecular metrics in the identification of disease susceptibility, effects of toxic agents, tumor identification and the design of personalized medical intervention.
