For registration assistance: 608-890-3260


Diseases mount the ultimate battle and challenge scientists to unlock the most complex puzzles of illness, disability and the body's response. Beginning with an overview of human anatomy and physiology, students will probe the nature of disease with new understandings about genetics, pathology and epidemiology. Case studies and presentations of current university research in stem cell therapy and pharmacological studies will complement hands-on laboratory studies.

Student profile

As a lab science course, it is recommended that students wear clothing that is able to handle a laboratory environment. All ALP students should bring a personal laptop or tablet for use in class and during evening sessions.
