Course Outline: 

This introductory course, specifically designed for Pathobiology graduate students, covers selected topics of tissue organization, anatomy, physiology, immunology and pathology. The goal is to provide a conceptual framework and basic vocabulary that will allow biomedical research scientists to pursue disease-oriented research topics and more effectively employ animal models of disease. In particular, this overview familiarizes students with fundamental principles of how mammalian organisms function physiologically in normal and diseased states. The course is directed by Cynthia Loomis, M.D., Ph.D., and Eva Hernando, Ph.D. and consists of bi-weekly lectures given by a mixture of clinical, translational, and basic science faculty. The topics covered in the lectures and discussions are closely coordinated with the "Introduction to Histopathology" laboratory course.
