PVS 5202 - Viral Pathogenesis

This course is aimed at reviewing and discussing recent advances regarding mechanisms involved in the development of viral disease at the virus, host, organ, tissue, cell, sub-cellular and molecular levels. Current advances in virus-host interactions will be discussed, including virulence factors, mechanisms of suppression and evasion of host responses, oncogenesis, persistence, immunopathology, neurotropism, neuroinvasion.

PVS 5331 - Toxicological Pathology

Principles of toxicological pathology are covered, with special attention to chemical carcinogenesis and systemic toxicological pathology. For the different systems, the particularities of structure and function of the system are reviewed, along with the particular mechanisms of toxicity to that system, the specific responses of that system to injury, and the methods to test for toxicity. The discussion of related scientific journal articles supplement the textbook information reviewed in lectures.

PVS 5632 - Vaccines: Mechanisms of Immune Protection

The focus is on several different approaches to inducing prophylactic immunity in the host. Both traditional and modern molecular approaches to vaccine design will be discussed. In addition, the mechanisms employed by pathogenic microbes to avoid hosts’ immune responses will be examined in the context of vaccine design. The students will gain an appreciation for the transition from basic research to practical applications. Also offered as ANSC 5632.
