This course will discuss topics in Advanced Cell Biology at the bachelor level.
Understanding Developmental Anatomy is fundamental to understanding human anatomy. It is important to realize how an embryo grows from a single cell to achieve full body form and then continues growing during life in utero. Whilst this growth in body form is occurring, the systems of the body are also developing in unison and in concert so that a completed form and function are able to emerge at ~8 weeks after conception. Studying the normal development is important to understanding the gross anatomy of the adult. Most importantly, understanding normal development is a prerequisite to understanding abnormal development with the possibility of developing better treatment strategies should such abnormalities occur. This course will include both normal and abnormal development of the human and will be related to the gross anatomy of the adult human.
This course will introduce students to a variety of methods used in morphology research. The course will have both lecture and laboratory components and cover the theory, fundamental operating principles and specimen preparation methods for different morphological techniques such as immunohistochemistry, light and electron microscopy. The content of the course will also include the use of instruments and troubleshooting. At the end of the course students should be able to handle small laboratory animals, retrieve tissue samples from laboratory animal, fix and section tissues for light microscopy, confocal and electron microscopy, process biological tissue samples for immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, identify organelles at the EM level and collate and label micrographs.
This course will guide students in learning advanced information on the microscopic structure of the cells and tissues of the human body and the biological features of their components. The correlation of structure and function at the cellular and molecular levels will be emphasized in lectures and laboratory sessions. The application of cell and tissue biology to research and clinical disciplines will be emphasized. For each topic, an introduction to the cellular architecture and specialized function of a given tissue will provide the necessary background that will explore contemporary research into the molecular and cellular basis of human diseases involving that tissue or organ.
This course is intended as an introduction and in-depth discussion focused on the biology of stem cells. The course will introduce the features of stem cells and basic mechanism regulating their self-renewal and pluripotency. In addition, the course will focus on selected examples of adult stem cells with an introduction to translational medicine approaches involving stem cell biology. Major emphasis will be placed on how advances in stem cell biology and tissue engineering can be applied to the use of embryonic and adult stem cells in regenerative medicine. In addition to these topics, Students will be introduced to the ethical, regulatory, and legal issues related to stem cell research.
During this course, students will study the general structure and functions of the building blocks of the human body (the cells) and how different cell types are organized to form the four basic tissues of the body which perform different functions.
This course is designed to describe normal human embryonic and fetal development so that a foundation is established to understand abnormal development in relation to medicine. Examples of the more common anomalies and abnormalities will be used as examples.
This course will discuss topics in physics as related to medicine.
During this course students will understand level one of the relevant anatomy of the cardiovascular, respiratory and abdominal systems necessary for the understanding of the pathology of diseases. At the end of each system, students will be able to understand the anatomy of the system and their significance to clinical practice.
Students will understand in greater detail the relevant anatomy of the male and female pelvis perineum, lower limb and upper limb. At the end of the course students will be able to know the nerve as well as the blood supply of these regions. This knowledge is a must to understand the pathology of diseases. At the end of each part, students will be able to understand the anatomy of the system and their significance to clinical practice.
During this Course students will understand the anatomical structures relevant to the understanding of diseases of the head, neck and the nervous system.
During this course, students will appreciate the evolution and the diversity of life. Basics of normal human anatomy and function relevant to human medicine. Students will also have developed an appropriate vocabulary and command of the English language such that they will be able to describe and discuss (written, oral) the structure and function of the various topics covered in this module.
The Principles of Research will offer MSC/PhD students the generic skills and methods they need to successfully complete their programs. The Principles of Research will use lectures, seminars and workshops and group discussions to introduce students to the methods for identifying, solving, analyzing and reporting of a specific problem pertinent to biomedical sciences. Laboratory data management and safety (environmental safety, radiation safety, and biosafety) will also be covered. At the end of the course, student will be able to select their bibliographical data from relevant databases, formulate a research hypothesis, design a research project, analyze and interpret data, write an abstract and a research manuscript and present a conference paper
