BIOL 504 - Emerging Infectious Diseases


3 Credits
Deals with the knowledge needed to better understand the factors contributing to the emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases and microbial resistance in a broad context, which may also include bio-warfare/bioterrorism. Specific disease agents are studied. These include viruses, bacteria, and eukaryotic organisms (excepting animal parasites such as helminthes). An introductory course in microbiology and a course in epidemiology would be helpful preparation for this class, but are not required. 
Prerequisite(s): For those enrolled in the M.S. program, completion of either BIOL 513 - Virology  or BIOL 533 - Bacteriology  is required. For those matriculated in the Emerging Infectious Diseases Certificate Program, this should be the last class taken in the series.
