Molecules to Cells II
Course Director: Patricia Cortes
Course Description: This two-semester course (MED 20400 and MED 30500) is designed to provide students with comprehensive and integrated concepts of biochemistry, cell biology, and medical genetics within a clinically oriented framework. Topics are presented with the aim that students will become aware of the contribution of cell and molecular biology and genetics to future developments in clinical diagnosis and treatment. Students are expected to acquire the necessary skills to integrate microscopic structure and cellular function, a prerequisite for other disciplines such as Human Development, Medical Histology, Physiology, Immunology, Pathophysiology, and other related areas. Session include lectures, small group discussions, and clinical correlations.
