BASIG 1502: Integrated Basic Sciences II

BASIG 1502 provides an overview of cancer, genetics, lymphatic system, and immunology. In Module 4: Cancer and Genetics emphasis is placed on DNA mutations, polymorphisms, patterns of inheritance in human diseases, cytogenetics, and molecular basis of cancer. Module 5: Lymphatic System and Immunology includes the gross anatomy and histology of the lymphatic system and the structure/function of the immune system. Basic precepts of the lymphatic system and immunology will be applied to inflammation, tissue repair and healing. Understanding of immunology will be applied to immune responses to infectious agents. Also included are: development and pathology of immunologically-mediated diseases, immune responses to transplants, cancer, HIV infection, and therapeutic use of drugs affecting the immune system.
