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.

Medical Biophysics 3503

Description:  Concepts of images relevant to all imaging modalities. Image formation and capture including digital cameras and the eye, pixels, aliasing, resolution, contrast, sensitivity, specificity, ROC, window/level, dynamic range, RGB, spectroscopy. Image compression and quality, quantitative analysis based on imaging software and principles of quantitative stereology.

Pharmacology 3620

Professor: Urquhart and Borradail

Description: A systems-based pharmacology course surveying the range of drugs used to treat disease processes affecting various organs of the body (e.g. cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, etc.) with emphasis on drug targets, mechanisms of drug action, and adverse effects.

Biochemistry 3385

Description: A course dealing with Biochemical aspects of the human condition. Topics in human disease, medical testing, and lifestyle will be considered in a clinical-case-oriented fashion. The emphasis will be on structural and metabolic issues related to carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids and proteins.

Biochemistry 3386

Description: The application of biochemical and molecular principles to the analytical components used to select, evaluate and interpret tests for clinical diseases. Also included will be discussions on the specialized instruments required. Students will gain understanding of the practice of clinical biochemistry, as one of the disciplines of laboratory medicine.
