At the core of most modern medical treatments is an understanding of how cells and biological molecules work. In this course we examine how medications such as antibiotics, anti-viral drugs, chemotherapy, and psychiatric drugs work. We also look at the molecular biology and treatment of conditions such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and auto-immune disorders, for example, Lupus.
Class time is devoted to interactive lectures and in-class assignments designed to help students understand the connections between science and medical treatments. Outside of class, participants are expected to write a number of short essays exploring how various modern medical treatments work on a cellular and molecular level.
