The Health & Disease program aims to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on the biological and sociological determinants of human health. The objective of the program is to provide students with a solid foundation in the biological sciences as it relates to basic human physiology and the mechanisms of disease and to facilitate the integration of concepts from across the life sciences, social sciences and humanities. In addition, students will acquire skills in laboratory science, experience with quantitative approaches, and develop effective communication skills to provide an appropriate background essential to research and problem solving in this field.
