Biol 2025 (Lecture and one lab section): Introduction to Microbiology

In this introductory course, students will learn about beneficial and harmful microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. We will look at the role of microbes in health, disease, and their natural environment. In the lab, we will practice handling microorganisms. We will learn how to grow them and methods to identify them, which is important for diagnostics purposes. The course is designed for health sciences and nursing students.

Biol 6831- Graduate seminar-Microbiology

In this seminar course, we will explore seminal themes and current advances in microbiology and related fields. Students will have an opportunity to improve their oral presentation skills as well as scientific writing and critical thinking. The content of the course will be derived primarily from student-led presentation and discussions of primary research articles, which will cover a wide range of topics every week. 

 

 

 

Biol 3441 - Biomedical parasitology

One of Dr. Guiton's favorite topics in microbiology. We will enter the amazing, very diverse world of parasites (Protozoans, helminths, arthropods). We will learn about the history of parasitology (highlighting some of the pioneers), the biology of parasites, the disease they cause, the molecular mechanisms underlying their interactions with their hosts (entry, attachment, nutrient acquisition, replication, and immune evasion). We'll also touch on the epidemiology of parasitic infections, their public health impact, as well as prevention, diagnosis, and treatments of these infections. Concepts of microbial pathogenesis will be emphasized. Students will be able to improve on their writing skills as well as oral communication skills through small group projects. In class discussions of case studies and hands on activities will supplement the lecture.
