OBIO 730. Biological Concepts. 1.5 Credit.

Overview of structures and biological determinants of conditions and diseases of the oral cavity. Both growth and development and pathophysiology will be introduced in the context of three areas of oral biology: biology of extracellular matrices, host-pathogens interactions, and orofacial neurobiology.

OBIO 731. Biological Concepts. 1.5 Credit.

Overview of structures and biological determinants of conditions and diseases of the oral cavity. Both growth and development and pathophysiology will be introduced in the context of three areas of oral biology: biology of extracellular matrices, host-pathogens interactions, and orofacial neurobiology.

OBIO 732. Biological Concepts. 1.5 Credit.

Overview of structures and biological determinants of conditions and diseases of the oral cavity. Both growth and development and pathophysiology will be introduced in the context of three areas of oral biology: biology of extracellular matrices, host-pathogens interactions, and orofacial neurobiology.
Same as: NBIO 732, PHCO 747.

OBIO 733. Translational Pain Medicine. 1.5 Credit.

This is a clinician-taught course that advances students' understanding of chronic pain (e.g., head/face pain, pelvic pain, back pain, cancer pain, surgical pain) in both the classroom and the clinic.
Requisites: Prerequisite, OBIO 732; Permission of the instructor for students lacking the prerequisite.
Same as: PHCO 748.

OBIO 770. Selected Topics in Oral Biology. 1 Credit.

Review of current findings in selected areas of oral biology. Students will critique current literature dealing with the newest discoveries in neuroscience, inflammation, or pathogenesis in an interactive forum between students and faculty.
