Metabolic Disorders

BIOL-GA 1032

During the semester, we will discuss how normal physiological processes of the human body are disrupted by disease. We will cover the cellular and molecular basis of physiological disorders such as the triad of metabolic syndrome (obesity, hypertension, and diabetes), and discuss how diseases such as cancer affect and interact with physiological systems. Class time will be a combination of lecture, discussion, and recitation.
