G4045y - Seminar in Cell Biology - NEW!

Seminar in Cell Biology: Microbial Pathogenesis and the Host Response
Course description: This is a combined lecture/seminar course designed for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. The focus is on understanding how infectious microbes manipulate host cell processes to multiply and evade immune detection. In each class, an introductory lecture will provide a summary of the biology of the organism under discussion and historical findings that have improved our understanding of host/pathogen interactions. Students will then present and discuss in detail recent papers and background material concerning specific aspects of microbial infection and the host response.

Prerequisites: Cell Biology (3041/4041) and the permission of the instructor.
