Anatomy and cell biology 3309

Description: A detailed study of the cellular and microscopic structure of the various tissues and organ systems of the body, with emphasis on man and other mammals used in medical research. Systems are examined stressing the relations of structure to function.

Anatomy and cell biology 3319

Description: A description of the structure of the organ-systems of the human body: the nervous system and special senses, musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems.

Physiology 3140

Professor: DiGuglielmo, Bai, Rylett, Pin

Description: A survey of principles of cellular physiology including membrane, ion channel, receptor, and transport protein function, and signal transduction mechanisms.

Average Course Rating: 6

% of People Who Would Recommend: 100

Textbook Readings Required: No

Most Frequent Study Style: Understand and application of concepts

Student Feedback:

  • Know all the details; tests include short answers which involve drawing structures, so study for that

Biology 3316

Description: The functional organization and physiology of cells with special reference to cellular membranes, energetics, cell motility, cell specializations, and cell-cell interactions. The course is based on the interpretation of experimental observations.

Biology 3326

Description: Training in current cell biological methods such as tissue culture, cell fractionation, computer-assisted microscopic analysis and immunocytochemistry.
