The first portion of the course explores the structures, functions, and properties of biologically relevant organic macromolecules including carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and enzymes. From there, the course explores the genetic control of biochemical processes, control of cell division and cell death, the biochemistry of cancer, and how pharmaceuticals are developed to treat disease. Finally, the course explores bioenergetics and metabolic processes that provide the energy for life. A major consideration is how these processes interface with health and disease. Recommended for students in nursing. Three lectures per week; no laboratory.
