With your advisor’s approval, graduate courses may be included in your Honors Final Plan of Study for graduation. They also count toward your Honors participation requirements.
This graduate level seminar covers the basics of genetics and genomics, personalized and genomic medicine, clinical pathophysiologies, therapeutic approaches, and research into mechanisms of common genetic diseases. This is a wonderful course for anyone interested in understanding genetics and genomics in an interdisciplinary way, organized by disease and the affected biochemical pathways. Our discussion of sophisticated and technical topics is always based on Personalized Medicine with an applied/clinical perspective and will help students gain literacy in some difficult-to-understand topics in an accessible way.
