Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. demonstrate understanding of the diverse molecular mechanisms used by pathogens to invade mammalian hosts.
2. describe the range of toxins produced by pathogenic bacteria and the molecular mechanisms they use to deliver these toxins to mammalian hosts.
3. describe the molecular mechanisms pathogenic microbes use to evade the mammalian host immune response.
4. do independent literature research on a current topic in microbial pathogenesis and critically evaluate that literature.
5. develop transferable skills that are important for the students’ future, in particular written communication.
