This course will focus on some notorious episodes of medical science
and the use of humans for experimental purposes.  The infamous
Tuskegee Syphilis Study, the U.S. Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission,
the testing of early polio virus vaccines, even Louis Pasteurís work
with rabies are some of the examples we will study.  This is an
introductory history course, but it will definitely help to have a
working knowledge of basic biology.  The approach to assignments
will be within the guidelines of COAS intensive writing requirements.
