This course expands on much of the material covered in 711 COMED. Emphasis will be placed on the following species: mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, and hamsters. Subjects to be covered include the taxonomy, applied anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, genetics, immunology, nutrition, behavior, husbandry, use as an animal model, and in-depth pathophysiology of significant diseases of each species. Laboratory procedures available for diagnosing these diseases will be discussed, including their limitations and how adventitious pathogens disrupt and confound experimental results derived from infected animals. Emphasis will be placed on features that make a particular species uniquely suitable for certain types of research. Prerequisite(s): CMED 711 Essentials of Animal Experimentation
IP 801 Integrity in the Conduct of Scientific Research Terrence Ackerman

This course consists of a study of the ethical principles and related federal and state laws that govern scientific research. Through a combination of lecture and case study discussion, students learn both the substance and application to scientific research of ethical principles and related laws. Topics addressed include research with human subjects, research with animals, the use of human biological materials, privacy and confidentiality of research and medical records, conflicts of interest, scientific misconduct, ownership of research, responsible reporting of research, and ethical training practices. The grade awarded to a student is based on the student's performance on a written midterm examination and a written final examination. The grade awarded will be Pass or Fail. The minimum score required to pass the course is 70, calculated as an average of the scores achieved on the midterm and final examinations.
