Advanced Clinical Science - MEDI304

This unit outlines concepts in cell biology and biochemistry that are fundamental to our understanding of human biology, and diseases. Biochemistry and cell biology are central to our understanding of disease and medicine. The topics in this unit include signal transduction, cytoskeletal dynamics, mitochondrial dysfunction, protein metabolism, stem cells and molecular targeted therapies.

These topics relate to cellular pathways and processes involved in cellular homeostasis, and perturbations and defects that lead to diseases (e.g. cancer and neurodegenerative disorders). Practical classes complement the course material and allow students to consolidate and apply conceptual elements to help shape their understanding. Laboratory techniques used include analysis of signalling cascades, and microscopy.
