HST.034 Pathology of Human Disease

Class Info

Provides a comprehensive overview of human pathology with emphasis on mechanisms of disease and modern diagnostic technologies. Topics include general mechanisms of disease (inflammation, infection, immune injury, transplantation, genetic disorders and neoplasia); pathology of lipids, enzymes, and molecular transporters; pathology of major organ systems; and review of diagnostic tools from surgical pathology to non-invasive techniques such as spectroscopy, imaging, and molecular markers of disease. The objectives of this subject are achieved by a set of integrated lectures and laboratories, as well as a student-driven term project leading to a formal presentation on a medical, socioeconomic, or technological issue in human pathology. Only HST students enrolled in specific degree programs may register under HST.034, graded P/D/F. Credit cannot also be received for HST.030 or HST.031.

This class has 7.05 as a prerequisite.

HST.034 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by S. Lovitch.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in MEC-250.

This class counts for a total of 16 credits.
