This course is designed as a first course in pulmonary biology in health and disease. The functional structure of the respiratory system and its physiology will be developed with the aid of quantitative models with relevance to human disease. The molecular basis of human disease, when known, will be reviewed and placed in the context of the aforementioned models. The use of diagnostic aids to establish the locus, type and magnitude of pathological processes will be examined.

Written mid-term and final exam. Participation in section and class.
