Course Title: MSC1040H: Physiologic Basis of Disease: Bench to Bedside
Instructor: Dr. Andrea McCart
Session Offered: 20211 S
Description:

This is a half-year lecture course designed for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students in the IMS who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the basic mechanisms of disease, how these processes lead to the clinical syndromes and how medical research in these areas leads to effective therapy.

The aim of the course is to integrate basic molecular, cellular, or physiological processes with subsequent disease processes and their treatments. The course will provide an opportunity to gain insights into medical and surgical diseases from birth to adulthood. The latest research including clinical trials if applicable will be discussed. Topics that may be discussed include cancer, transplantation, diabetes, sepsis, epilepsy, inflammatory bowel disease and others. Papers of relevance to the discussion will be provided.

The course will consist of 12 2-hour sessions. Each session will feature a 1 hour lecture by faculty members of the University of Toronto who are authorities on the topic under discussion. This will be followed by the presentation of a related and relevant paper by 1-4 students (depending on enrolment) who will also lead the subsequent class discussion. Students will sign up for their presentations prior to the first class. Students will work with the respective faculty member to elect the paper for presentation.

Course Title: MSC1088H: Brain Positron Emission Tomography
Instructor: Professor Romina Mizrahi
Session Offered: tbd
Description:

Positron emission tomography (PET) has become an important tool for the early detection of disease, the understanding of basic molecular aspects of brain function and the evaluation of medical treatment. This course will build on a multidisciplinary team involving chemists, physicists, image scientists, computer scientists and clinician scientists currently investigating brain diseases such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, addictions, geriatrics and movement disorders.

The principal objectives of this course are to review the fundamental concepts of PET imaging and to convey an understanding of the opportunities that PET technology offers in brain research and drug development. Specific issues will be addressed in a perspective to answer basic research questions:

1) The chemistry of labelling compounds with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides; 2) The design of PET radiopharmaceuticals – impact on interpretation of scanning data (e.g. position of labelling, metabolism, drugs vs. ligands); 3) PET instrumentation – how does a PET scanner or a cyclotron work (physics)?; 4) How PET data is analysed (kinetic modelling, image analysis); How PET can be used as a tool in brain research and drug development.

Course Title: MSC1089H: The Biopsychosocial Basis of Mental Health and Addictive Disorders
Instructor: Professor Tony George
Session Offered: 20211 S
Description:

Prof. George and colleagues will review the biopsychosocial basis of mental health and addictive disorders from the perspectives of etiology, pathophysiology, clinical phenomenology and diagnostics, genetics, neuroimaging, and treatment which have all contributed to our increasing understanding of psychiatric and substance use disorders from a biomedical (“disease”) concept. The role of stigma and recovery would also be discussed from a biobehavioural and social determinants of health perspective, to produce an integrated perspective on mental health and addictive disorders. The contemporary approach to treatment of these disorders would also be discussed which emphasizes biological, psychological and social policy and prevention perspectives.

Course Title: MSC2010Y: Molecular Medicine in Human Genetic Disease (Full Year Course)
Instructor: Professor Lucy Osborne
Session Offered: 20209 Y
Description:

This course should encourage students to develop an approach to the genetic analysis, investigation and treatment of human disease.

Introduction to molecular approaches: Students will be introduced to useful tools and concepts that enable the study of a wide spectrum of human diseases. These include such topics as: population identification and sample collection; genome scanning with subsequent linkage analysis; mutation detection methods; copy number variation analysis and the use of animal models.

Specific examples of the genetics of human disease: In the body of the course, a series of 16 lectures will cover the genetic analysis of specific diseases. Lecturers will be encouraged to discuss: a brief description of the disease they intend to cover (eg: the basic clinical presentation and pathophysiology); the approach to the study of this disease; and the molecular changes that occur. Integration with animal models and the potential for human gene therapy will be encouraged. Each lecture will provide an example of the application of molecular tools to the investigation of a specific human disease. Lecturers will be encouraged to provide weekly reading assignments.

The student will be required to prepare a Letter of Intent for a proposal that discusses the genetic analysis of a specific human disease (due February). Students are advised to identify a preceptor to help with their proposal idea. Preceptors are often chosen from the course lecturers, but students are not restricted to these individuals. While the preceptor will act in an advisory capacity, the student must carry out the initial problem identification and the preparation of the proposal. Considerable latitude will be allowed in the choice of project, preceptor and approach to the disease. The student will also present a final 10 minute, in-class slide presentation of this proposal (in March). As a final assignment, the student will write a short News & Views type article about a paper or papers in the filed of molecular medicine that have been published during the past calendar year. The topic must be unrelated to their thesis.
