(4 cr )   This course will provide undergraduates with an in-depth
understanding of the biology of human tissues and organs at the
cellular and molecular level . Emphasis will be on the normal
structural and functional relationships of adult tissues, but will
include certain aspects of embryonic tissue formation and medically
important tissue abnormalities.   After discussing the molecular
basis of fundamental types of tissues, we will consider each of the
organ systems, including the nervous system, immune system,
endocrine system and reproductive systems. Developmental aspects of
certain specialized tissues such as bone, teeth, and blood cells
will be covered in greater detail.  9:05A-9:55A TR CH 001
