This course will focus primarily on specific diseases associated with protein misfolding including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Creutzfeldt-Jakob, polyglutamine expansion disease, and amyotrophic lateral schlerosis among others. We will offer expert lecturers drawn from the U of T faculty and internationally recognized specialists. The content delivery will consist of lecture for about 2/3 of the class followed by discussion for the remaining 1/3. Further student-lead teaching will be provided by a series of short presentations present during the last three sessions of the course (depending on enrollment).
