MSCI 565 “Principles of Pathobiology”
Instructors: Wolf Vogelbein, Steve Kaattari, Ryan Carnegie, Andrew Wargo (Guest Lecturer)
Meeting Time: Tuesday and Thursday, 9am -10am
Location: CBH N212
Description: This course focuses on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of pathogenesis in important emerging diseases in the medical, veterinary, and aquacultural fields. Students will learn how current molecular and cellular techniques are being applied to the resolution of a variety of infectious and non-infectious diseases. Mammalian models provide a foundation for application to the diseases of fish and shellfish.
Below are a few courses we are in the process of developing. Any input from faculty, current students, or prospective students is welcome.
“Aquatic Human Health”
This will be a graduate level course where we will explore topics related to human disease specific to the aquatic environment.
This will be a graduate level course where we will focus on topics related to viruses in aquatic hosts. General virology will also be covered.
“Ecological and Evolutionary Modeling of Infectious Diseases”
This will be a graduate level course where we will learn approaches for mathematical modeling of the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases. We will particularly focus on infectious diseases in aquatic environments.
