Mechanisms of Microbial Pathogenesis

Credits: 4 CREDITS (Multiple)
Sites: HMS
Director(s): Clyde Crumpacker, Harvey Simon
Prerequisites: Biochemistry required; Genetics useful, molecular biology strongly recommended.
Offered: Fall.
Location: HMS - Harvard Medical School (0)
Open to Exclerks: No (HMS only)
Description: The course will deal with the mechanisms of pathogenesis of bacteria, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, viruses and the fungi. Special emphasis will be placed on events at the molecular level. Topics have been selected for intrinsic interest and will cover the demonstrated spectrum of pathophysiologic mechanisms. A course in molecular biology is strongly recommended as a prerequisite.
