Fungi are a group of multicellular, eukaryotic organisms classified morphologically into hyphae and mycelia. Although commonly depicted, by laypeople, with mushroom caps, fungi are very diverse in their morphology and notorious for being very abundant and very resilient. Although some fungal species are normal colonizers in humans, others have pathogenic potential and are thus clinically relevant.
In this course, the student will be introduced to the most important fungal pathogens and their clinical presentation. As the student progresses through the course, the relationship between fungal infection and opportunism will be explained in detail.
For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, histology, and physiology.
I loved how thoroughly the pathogenicity of each microorganism was covered. It was also great that the Professors explained, in detail, exactly how the microorganisms infected their target cells.
Excellent professor. I think this lecture in particular (fungi) is quick and just the essential facts.
Pretty well explained. Its short and very useful when i have to study for my college tests. Totally recommended!
Clear and precise explanation! Goes into the essence of this condition and correlates very well the clinical presentation
