GS12 1233 Integrative and Molecular Physiology

Berdeaux, Rebecca. Three semester hours. Spring and Fall, annually. Grading System: Letter Grade. Prerequisite: GSBS Core Course

In order to understand the etiology and consequences of disease and interpret related research results, one must have a fundamental understanding of normal mammalian physiology. This course will cover selected current topics in physiology with sets of lectures designed to introduce students to system-level mammalian physiology while emphasizing normal and dysregulated molecular events underlying physiological control and integration of organ function. Instructors will highlight recent advances in the understanding of physiology at the molecular level and interpretation of animal experiments designed to analyze physiological function.
