Assignment - Disease / Environmental Issues Paper and Presentation

Biology/Health Science majors will perform literature research to present a review of the biology of a human disease, detailing four areas:

1. the causative agent of the disease;

2. the biochemical mechanism by which disease symptoms result (generally genetic diseases are more straightforward to deal with in these areas);

3. how the individual is affected by these molecular events (to be covered in detail);

4. and finally how the disease agent(s) and their symptoms affect the population. 

Environmental Biology/Science/Studies majors may choose to do the disease overview project, or they may choose to focus on a current environmental issue and summarize the solution options currently being discussed/implemented, as long as their topic is not covered as part of any Ethical Issues presentation.”
