A review of basic principles of Chemistry including Organic Chemistry, continuing with levels of organization from nuclear to detailed cellular physiology, structure and function. Topics also include cellular metabolism and respiration. No prerequisites required.
An introduction to cell transport mechanisms, protein synthesis, cell growth and reproduction. A review of the details of structure, function and classifications of the various tissue levels of organization and their supporting cells. Material begins with embryological origins of tissue and germ layer formation, and moves into specifics of Epithelial, Connective, Muscle, and Nervous tissue types. Concludes with a brief review of various causes and responses to cell injury, adaptation mechanisms and stages of healing and repair. Prerequisite: Biology 1013.
Begins with a detailed review of the Integumentary system. Further study is continued with the Immune System’s general defense response with physiological details of the inflammatory response from acute to chronic. Specific immune responses are covered with passive and acquired immunity including vaccinations. Various processes and routes of entry for infection are presented with autoimmune diseases and hypersensitivity reactions. Prerequisite: Biology 1023.
An introduction to the study of nutrition beginning with guidelines on providing nutritional advice, standards, recommended intake of nutrients and food labeling. Expands into details of function and classification of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, energy metabolism, metabolic rate, digestion, absorption, vitamins (classification, sources, guidelines, deficiencies, excesses), water, and minerals (macro, trace, deficiencies, excesses). No prerequisites required.
Surveys classification, structure and function of prokaryotic and eucaryotic cells. Presents classifications, structure, functioning, characteristics, diseases and transmission of bacteria, viruses, prions, protozoa and fungi as well as listing various reportable diseases and proper reporting procedures. No prerequisites required.
