PHAR 638 Biosystems II

This course builds on the foundation established in Biosystems I. A strong emphasis is placed on cellular metabolism, maintenance of cellular homeostasis, and the interplay between host-defense and pathogenic agents. The role that ontogenesis plays in defining the structural and functional features of the adult organism is also discussed. Throughout the course there is a strong emphasis on integration of physical, chemical and biological concepts that serve as the foundation for pharmacological and pathophysiological principles considered later in the curriculum.
