This is a Biological Sciences course and even though it is an introductory level course, it is not to be considered simple or superficial. As a biology course, this curriculum is designed to present the student with the fundamentals of infectious disease, immunology, and virology as they apply to HIV disease. With this knowledge of the biology of the HIV, the impact of the HIV epidemic is examined in a variety of psychological and social arenas.
Class Notes for Biomedical Issues of HIV/AIDS.
This material consists of brief comments on the individual biological lecture topics and a copy of most of the overhead figures, graphs, and diagrams that will be discussed in class. It is strongly recommended that you pick up the Class Notes and bring them with you to each class.
Class Notes will be distributed beginning THURSDAY, September 10th by the staff of the Office of Undergraduate Instruction (OUGI), Room B112, Nelson Labs, Busch Campus, Monday through Friday, 8:30am - 5:00pm. The staff has been instructed to provide manuals only to students who are officially registered and appear on the class roster. Any student who isn't registered will not receive a manual. All students who are registered for your course are required to pick up their manuals no later than Friday, September 25, 2009 from OUGI. I will distribute copies in class starting on Spetember 21, 2009.
Several other texts or reference books that might be useful to you as additional resources are:
- H. Fan, R. Conner, and L. Villarreal. (1995) The Biology of AIDS.
- G. Stine. (2009) AIDS Update.
- Benjamin Weeks andI.E. Alcamo. (2009) AIDS: The Biological Basis
Most microbology texts books also have chapters on infectious disease, immunology and virology. These also could be useful for background information.
