Stephanie A. Santorico, Mathematical and Statistical Science Professor and Interim Associate Dean for Research and Creative Activities, recently launched a course on the platform Coursera on how genetics relates to human health (and therefore disease). The course is for medical, health, and public health professional and trainee learners who will be working with genetic data and/or would like to expand their knowledge of genetics and genetic data analysis. Students should have a basic knowledge of introductory genetics (what one would learn in an introductory biology course) and should have taken, (or be taking concurrently) an introductory course in epidemiology, statistics or biostatistics.
