HEPR 430 - GENETICS FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS


Credits: Three
Prerequisite: MATH 125, CHEM 104, BIOL-102
Just as the knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry is crucial for practitioners in health care systems, dealing with disease in the future demands an understanding of the biochemistry of the human genome. Genetics for health care professionals encompasses the study of inheritance of diseases in families and molecular genetics. The pathogenesis of inherited disorders, diagnosis and treatment of genetic diseases and investigations of methods for gene therapy will be discussed. Ethical considerations will be addressed and applied within the context of health care environment.
