Biomedical Science Courses (BMS)

BMS 6615
Medical Microbiology and Immunology (3)
  Emphasizes the basic clinical applications of microbiology and immunology in the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. Co-requisite: BMS L615
BMS 6620
Neuroscience (3)
  Introduces the structure and functions of the nervous system. Special attention will be placed on the functional systems of the brain and the senses.
BMS 6625
Medical Cell Biology (3)
  Focuses on the cellular and molecular bases of human diseases and disease processes.
BMS 6630
Medical Pharmacology (3)
  This course reviews the beneficial and harmful actions of drugs on the tissues and organs of the body. Provides the foundation for understanding drug actions in health and disease.
BMS 6635
Medical Physiology (3)
  Reviews the functions of the various organ systems and their integration in the human body at an advanced level.
BMS 6655
Clinical Biochemistry (3)
  This course is the discipline of pathology (or laboratory medicine) that is concerned with the detection and measurement of biochemical changes in disease. This course will give a succinct overview, the “big picture”, and relevance of biochemistry and essential pathways that regulate and affect various disorders. Discussion of potential targets for research and drug development through the use of case studies will be included. Prerequisites: Cell Biology/Lab, General Chemistry/Lab, Genetics or equivalent, or by permission of instructor.
BMS 6665
Neuroanatomy (3)
  This graduate course is a comprehensive study of the anatomy of the human nervous system. Special emphasis will be placed on relating clinical disorders to the relevant neurological structures and pathways. Prerequisites: Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology.
BMS 6660
Histology and Embryology (3)
  Microscopic organization, structure, and function of human tissues and organs; the principles of human embryonic and fetal development.
BMS L660
Histology and Embryology Lab (1)
  Microscope anatomy and function of cell types and tissues of mammalian organs during development and adulthood. Prerequisites: anatomy and Physiology or permission of instructor. Corequisite: Histology and Embryology.
BMS 6695 Thesis Research (1-3)
  Under the guidance of the student’s adviser the Chair of the Department, the student may pursue original research (independent acquisition and interpretation of data) in a particular area of the biomedical sciences. The completion of a thesis is required. The results and conclusions must be successfully defended before the student’s graduate committee. Grading system is pass/fail. Prerequisites: 3.0 GPA and permission of the Chair of the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
