MI 18SC The Coming Influenza Pandemic
Examines the H1N1 influenza virus from molecular, clinical, societal, historical, demographic, economic, and political perspectives. Examines the unique genetic, epidemiological, virologic, and pathogenic features of the influenza virus that allow it to continue to reinvent itself and re-emerge on an annual basis. Discusses past successes and failures, the current status of influenza, and the crit.... More Description for MI 18SC
MI 19SC Measles and Sneezles and Things That Go Mumps in the Night
A study of measles (until recently one of the leading causes of death in the world and the most contagious disease agent ever studied) and its relatives in the paramyxovirus family, including mumps, respiratory syncytial virus, hendra, and nipah, as well as a number of important animal pathogens. Investigates the nature of viruses using the paramyxoviruses as a paradigm. Topics include: the histor.... More Description for MI 19SC
MI 27SC Viruses in the News
Viruses are unique biological entities that resemble both living and inanimate objects. Despite their simple structure they include some of the most devastating and ubiquitous causes of human disease. The compelling nature of this topic is illustrated by the recent Ebola epidemic, which emerged coincident with the last time this class was offered. From smallpox to measles to HIV to the common c.... More Description for MI 27SC

MI 70Q Photographing Nature
Utilizes the idiom of photography to learn about nature, enhance observation, and explore scientific concepts. Builds upon the pioneering photographic work of Eadweard J. Muybridge on human and animal locomotion. A secondary goal is to learn the grammar, syntax, composition, and style of nature photography to enhance the use of this medium as a form of scientific communication and also to explore....
