Advanced Clinical Science - MEDI304

This unit introduces key concepts in cell biology and biochemistry that are fundamental to our understanding of human biology, diseases and medicine. You will learn about signal transduction, cytoskeletal dynamics, mitochondrial dysfunction, protein metabolism, stem cells and molecular targeted therapies. You will explore cellular pathways and processes involved in cellular homeostasis, and perturbations and defects that lead to diseases (e.g. cancer and neurodegenerative disorders). You will participate in practical classes that complement the lecture material and allow you to consolidate and apply conceptual elements to help shape your understanding. You will be required to use laboratory techniques including analysis of signalling cascades, and microscopy.
