This course will focus on molecular and cellular mechanisms behind cancer initiation and progression. Particular focus on the control pathways will provide students the background to the cutting edge of drug design for targeted cancer therapy.
The Human Physiology course will provide students with the core concepts of human physiological linking molecular, cellular and system/organ aspects in the study of human Neural, gastrointestinal, endocrine and reproductive physiology and disease.
The Human Physiology course will provide students with the core concepts of human physiological linking molecular, cellular and system/organ aspects in the study of human cardiovascular, respiratory and renal physiology and disease. The goal is to allow students to acquire broad knowledge of functional principles at the cellular and organ levels in order to describe the concepts of integrated systems physiology in humans. Consequently they will be challenged to explore how to apply these basic physiological principles to research strategies addressing current and emerging relevant health issues.
The Human Physiology course will provide students with the core concepts of human physiological linking molecular, cellular and system/organ aspects in the study of human neural, integrative responses and physiology of aging. The goal is to allow students to acquire broad knowledge of functional principles at the organ and system levels in order to describe the concepts of integrated systems physiology in humans. Consequently they will be challenged to explore how to apply these basic physiological principles to research strategies addressing current and emerging relevant health issues.
This course is aimed at students who have an interest in Electrophysiology.
This course is designed to provide accurate and essential information about the function of the human body in an interesting manner to those students who are pursuing careers in food system education, science and allied health fields. The course is delivered for students who have minimal backgrounds in physical and biological sciences. The course is organised in groups of related subjects beginning with a discussion of the physical basis of life and proceeding through levels of increasing complexity. Each unit will include at the beginning objectives and a narrative outline, which meant to help students in reviewing them before the class. In addition, students will be involved in the learning process. Finally, the course is designed to stimulate the students interests in the subject matter, and help them relate their classroom knowledge to their future vocational experiences.
This course begins with an introduction to human physiology and continues with introductions to the physiology of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The general introduction includes cell transport systems, basic electrophysiology of excitable cells, generation and conduction of action potentials, transmission of signals across gap junctions and the neuromuscular junction. It also includes an introduction to receptor physiology, simple motor reflexes and the physiology of skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscle. The cardiovascular physiology course includes the ionic basis of the cardiac muscle and pacemaker action potentials, excitation-contraction coupling, electrical and mechanical events of the cardiac cycle, cardiac output and its regulation, blood and lymph systems, autonomic regulation of the heart and blood flow. The respiratory physiology course includes the physical laws governing gas pressure and flow, mechanics of ventilation including lung volumes and capacities, the process of gas exchange and transport, control of breathing and an introduction to the pathophysiology of selected respiratory disorders. The courses will also include a variety of practical and computer based learning activities.
This course covers normal function of the human body following an organ system approach. The emphasis of this part of the course is to provide the student with understanding of the integrated regulation of various body processes among the major systems. The overall aim of the course is to provide the student with an intermediate level of understanding of the physiological basis of medicine. In this course, the focus will be on blood, endocrine, renal and gastrointestinal physiology.
This course covers four main topis: neurophysiology of the CNS, normal aging, reproduction and integrative physiological responses. The neurophysiology of CNS will explore the general organization and functioning of the peripheral nervous system, spinal cord, and brain as they provide a neurobiological framework for the understanding of the motor, and sensory functions, autonomic bodily actions, the functioning of special senses, and various faculties of cognition. The particular goal of this pat is to provide the foundation for understanding the impairments of sensation, action, and cognition that accompany injury, disease or dysfunction in the central nervous system. The part related to senescence will present an overview of how time modifies biological processes and explore in some details the effects of aging on the endocrine, respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, musculoskeletal system and CNS. The part related to human reproduction will explore the main hormonal axis controlling reproductive cycle in woman and man. Finally, the integrative part of the course will explore integrated bodily responses in extreme environments like when diving, or when exposed to extreme heat. The course will build upon the knowledge acquired through prior studies aiming to achieve intermediate understanding of physiology of body functions.
