NUR 424 - Clinically-Applied Genetics

This course explores the genetic basis of human health and disease. It examines the specific mechanisms by which genetic differences give rise to altered body function and influence disease risk, and how these differences are inherited. It emphasizes the advances in genetics that impact the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses and conditions. In so doing, it both addresses the basic science of genetics and explores related clinically-applied topics such as the ethical implications of genetics, genetic screening, genetic risk assessment, and gene therapy.
