Different integrated systems such as the digestive, neuromuscular, reproductive, and immunological systems will be studied from the anatomical level to the molecular level, and health issues related to each system will be identified. Certain health issues such as cancer, AIDS, and Alzheimer's disease will be considered in greater detail. The course will explore issues at the interface of biological research, personal ethics, and public policy, issues such as use of genetically modified agricultural products, potential of gene therapy, new reproductive technologies including cloning, and government support of stem cell research.
