Estimates from the World Health Organization demonstrate that
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) remains a leading cause of death globally. TB also
is the leading cause of death among persons with HIV infection and remains a
challenge for both clinicians and researchers.
This nine-week course focuses on TB/HIV Co-Infection and innovative

For centuries we have collectively marveled at plant diversity and form—from
Charles Darwin’s early fascination with stems and flowers to Seymour Krelborn’s
distorted doting in Little Shop of Horrors. This course intends to present
an intriguing and scientifically valid look at how plants themselves experience
the world—from the colors they see to the sensations they feel. Highlighting
the latest research in genetics and more, we will delve into the inner
lives of plants and draw parallels with the human senses to reveal that
Complex analysis is the study of functions that live in the complex plane, i.e. functions that have complex arguments and complex outputs. In order to study the behavior of such functions we’ll need to first understand the basic objects involved, namely the complex numbers. We’ll begin with some history: When and why were complex numbers invented? Was it the need for a solution of the equation x^2 = -1 that brought the field of complex analysis into being, or were there other reasons?
