Molecular and Cellular Pathophysiology: Course Description

Graduate students in the 'Molecular and Cellular Pathophysiology' OpenCourseWare will learn about DNA repair in injured organs and tissues and examine their responses on a cellular and molecular level. Students will investigate the disease that affects the damaged tissues and organs and identify stages, such as cancer, inflammation, infection and immunity. The course discusses student projects and presentations, recent scientific research papers and lectures that study the pathophysiology of this topic. Students will learn in-depth about DNA repair in this free graduate course. This course was taught by MIT professor David Schauer in 2005 as a lecture class with two sessions per week.

This OpenCourseWare includes a set of readings. If you are interested in taking this free course, visit the molecular physiology course page.
