This upper division undergraduate class and (with additional requirements) graduate level class is taught by three veterinary pathologists (Drs. Laegreid, Munoz-Gutierrez, O'Toole and Fox) and the department's virologist (Dr. Miller). Individual guest lectures may be given junior or senior veterinary students doing externships in the department. The class addresses anatomical, pathophysiological and mechanistic basis of disease in mammals. The emphasis is on disease concepts, and on gross, microscopic and clinicopathological changes associated with lesions. It addresses cell injury and death, cellular degeneration, disturbances of growth and circulation, neoplasia, inflammation and recognition of gross and microscopic tissue changes. A background in immunology and histology will be beneficial but not essential. Prerequisites: C or better in BIOL2022. There is an emphasis in the course on the pathogenesis of infectious agents.

Audience: Medical microbiology students; pre-veterinary students; students interested in biomedicine; graduate students in biomedical fields.
