Goals
 

 

  • To briefly review basic concepts of microbiology, with emphasis on the processes which allow bacteria, fungi, and viruses to cause disease.
  • To introduce the students to the organization and function of host responses and host defense to disease.
  • To provide students with a survey of the clinically significant bacterial, fungal, and viral diseases in the world, with an emphasis on those most common in Palestine and the middle east and have important social, financial, and ethical consequences.
  • To study the morphology, physiology, virulence factors, pathology and epidemiology, of pathogenic microbes and methods of detection, prevention and treatment of the diseases they cause.
  • Some ‘case study’ examples will be included in lectures in order to better understand the disease concepts.

 

Attendance: Attendance is very important, all material covered in lecture may be covered in term tests and final exam, regardless of whether it appears in the required textbook.

 

Lecturer: Dr. Abdelraouf A. Elmanama (Ph. D Microbiology)
