BIOL 347 Precision Medicine

This course provides students interested in human health with a comprehensive overview of precision medicine (an approach that takes into account an individual’s biology, environment, and lifestyle). Each week students are introduced to a new “‘-omic/ome” (e.g. genomic/microbiome/exposome) and discuss how it can be used to address the ethical, legal, social, and public health implications of precision medicine. Students learn how to write a public health policy brief and deliver a medical grand rounds presentation. [W]
