Guang Guo

Topics include an introduction to biometrics (inferring genetic influences using genetically related individuals); an introduction to basic principles of molecular genetics; joint influences of social contexts and genetic heritage to human behaviors; history of human evolution and contemporary race/ethnicity; evolutionary psychology; sex, gender, and genetics; ethical, legal, and social issues in genetic studies; genetic testing; and epigenetics - the potential links between genes and environment. (3 credits)


EPID 742* Biomarkers in Population-Based Research

Stephanie Engel

This course surveys the major issues relevant to the application of biomarkers in epidemiological research, including the logistical hurdles in biospecimen collection and storage, assessments of biomarker quality, analytic issues, and the interpretation of quantitative estimates. (2 credits)


EPID 735: Cardiovascular Epidemiology

Laura Loehr, Wayne Rosamond

Review of cardiovascular health and disease in populations and their population determinants. Topics include epidemiologic methods, risk factors, strategies for prevention, and a student research project.(3 credits)


PATH 767: Molecular and Cellular Biology of Cardiovascular Diseases

Jonathon W. Homeister, Christopher P. Mack

This advanced course will explore the underlying pathogenesis of clinical cardiac and vascular disease with the objective of teaching students to understand, investigate, and communicate current concepts of cardiovascular disease. Study topics include hypertensions, lipid metabolism and atherosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, myocardial injury, heart failure, angiogenesis, thrombosis and thrombolysis, genetics and epidemiology of cardiovascular disease, and others. (3 credits)


MHCH 611/NUTR 611: Nutrition across the Life Cycle

Anna Maria Siega-Riz, Carmen Samuel Hodge, Amanda Holliday

This course covers nutrition during the life cycle. Units include women during preconception, pregnancy, and lactation; infancy; childhood; adolescence; and older adults (65+). Nutrient and energy needs, assessment of nutritional status, and cultural and socioeconomic barriers are discussed for each phase. (3 credits)


EPID 814/NUTR 814: Obesity Epidemiology

June Stevens, Patrick Bradshaw

NUTR 812: Introduction to Obesity: From Cell to Society

Saroja Voruganti, Jennifer Poti

This is an interdisciplinary course focused on population and laboratory based research on obesity, including international and national trends in obesity, its determinants, and consequences. The course will provide a broad survey of obesity research, including measurement issues, biological, social and economic etiologies, health and economic consequences, and prevention and treatment of obesity. (3 credits)


NUTR 863: Advanced Nutritional Biochemistry: Microenvironments: Inflammation in Obesity, Atherosclerosis and Cancer


Liza Makowski

Will examine the interaction of cells in the microenvironment and recent advances in the role of metabolism and inflammation. (2 credits)


EPID 889: Population Burden Measures in Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology

Christy Avery

This course will provide students with a practical knowledge of disease burden metrics that can serve as a substitute or companion to traditionally reported ratio measures. Although this course will use examples from the cardiovascular disease literature, the concepts presented are applicable to a broad range of topical areas. (1 credit)

EPID 742* Biomarkers in Population-Based Research

Stephanie Engel

This course surveys the major issues relevant to the application of biomarkers in epidemiological research, including the logistical hurdles in biospecimen collection and storage, assessments of biomarker quality, analytic issues, and the interpretation of quantitative estimates. (2 credits)
