222.651.01 ADVANCED NUTRIENT METABOLISM
Provides an in-depth review of the metabolism of major nutrients and its importance in disease states, such as teratogenesis, cardiovascular disease, ageing, cancer, obesity, and liver fibrosis. Focuses on regulatory mechanisms, integration of metabolic pathways, and biochemical and physiological aspects of nutrient metabolism at the whole body, tissue and cellular level. Includes both discussion and lectures.
Upon successfully completing this course you will be able to: 1) apply basic concepts of whole body nutrient homeostasis to nutrient control at the cellular level; 2) critically evaluate new findings on the role of nutrients in functions such as cellular differentiation, bone remodeling and cognitive function; 3) gain a greater understanding of metabolic pathway interrelationships.
