Prerequisite: BMI 5330 and BMI 5352

Course Description
Systems medicine is an interdisciplinary field of study that looks at the systems of the human body as part of an integrated whole, incorporating biochemical, physiological, and environment interactions. Systems medicine draws on systems science, omics, imaging, systems biology, and considers complex interactions within the human body in light of a patient's genomics, behavior and environment, and design the precision medicine at systems level. Students will engage in hands-on projects exploring methods of systems medicine.
