What is the purpose of this project? In our course, we have spent our time learning about the physiology of organ systems. Many of us are taking this course to enter the healthcare field, thus, we may apply these concepts to the study of pathophysiology – how biological function is altered by disease. This is the source of disease symptoms, and ultimately, why some diseases are fatal. In this project, we will choose one organ system and focus on a specific disease that targets that system. What are you being asked to do for this project?
