immunology and physiologic effects of these parasites in their vertebrate and invertebrate hosts. Additionally, emphasis will be placed on the history of
parasitic disease in human populations, allowing students to gain an understanding of the problems these organisms have caused in the past, how they were treated and controlled, and the role parasites may play in the future. BIOL 330 Parasitology lab must be taken concurrently. Credit(s): 4
