The thorax contains the cardiovascular and respiratory organs, which are required for immediate sustenance of life. It also facilitates the communication between the head and the abdomen by allowing passage to the esophagus and the gastrointestinal efferents of the vagus nerve. Adequate development of the cardiovascular and respiratory organs is key to attain compatibility with life at birth.
In this course, the student will be introduced to the stages of development of the heart, airway, and lungs. Along the way, they will also learn about diseases that occur as a result of errors in development.
For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry, with an emphasis on cell division and gene expression. Parallel study of the anatomy and physiology of the heart and lungs is highly encouraged.
