Macromolecular Assemblies I

GMS BY 776 (2 credits)

This graduate course covers the concepts of the assembly of biomacromolecules, their structure and stabilizing forces, and biological function as related to structure. Examples are drawn from assemblies of proteins, lipids, lipoprotein systems, membranes and viruses. The Fall semester (BY776) covers protein assemblies, protein-nucleic acid assemblies, and membrane proteins. The Spring semester (BY777) covers lipid-protein assemblies. Semesters are independent and may be taken in either order. 2 cr, Fall sem.

Medical Physiology

GMS PH 740 (6 credits)

(MED MS 134) This course covers transport mechanisms, molecular biology and mechanics of muscle, blood, and the function and regulation of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, respiratory and renal systems, with emphasis on integrative aspects. We use a lecture format, a few laboratory sessions and numerous small group discussions of problems and clinical cases that encourage conceptual understanding of course material. 6 cr, Spring sem.

Special Topics in Physiology

GMS PH 745 (Var credits)

Current and classical papers in a given area of physiology are assigned for reading and later discussion with students. Topics include mechanics of muscle, cell motility, membrane transport, sensory physiology, and instrumentation in physiological research. Var cr, Fall & Spring sem.

Endocrinology

GMS PH 748 (2 credits)

(MED MS 128) This is an integrated treatment of human endocrinology: biosynthesis of hormones, regulation, receptor interactions, and physiological effects. The course is presented in lecture format and in small group discussion sessions where clinical cases are used to exemplify the mechanisms of endocrine function. 2 cr, Spring sem.
