Students at the University of Cincinnati are exploring the science behind the COVID-19 pandemic in a new class that debuts Monday, Jan. 25. The class includes a series of 13 lectures from faculty in the College of Medicine and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center who are actively conducting research in or caring for patients with COVID-19. These lectures address the disease's virology, impact on organ systems, detection and treatment, epidemiology, vaccination and psychosocial impact on society. The class, titled Science of the COVID-19 Pandemic, was conceptualized and developed by a group of UC medical students and students in the Medical Sciences undergraduate program under the mentorship of William Miller, PhD, professor of molecular genetics and director of the Molecular Genetic Graduate Program, and Anil Menon, PhD, associate dean of undergraduate education in the UC College of Medicine. The course offers two hours of credit for undergraduates and will make all lectures available to the public on their website.
