Integrative Cell Biology - LIFE95012
ICB will give students an understanding of how molecules, cells and organs are integrated into
functional systems. Students should gain a deep appreciation of the principles of: cell
communication (cell-surface receptor proteins and intracellular pathways), neuronal
communication and the brain, the key concepts in the cell biology of development, the biology of
stem cells, and the constituent components and regulation of physiological processes within the
immune system. ICB will build on first year cell biology teaching and complement Macromolecular
Structure and function 2.
Biological Chemistry and Microbiology - LS1-BCM
- To ground an understanding of living systems in terms of their underlying physics and chemistry.
- To appreciate the diversity of metabolic processes, their regulation, and their importance.
- To explore how mathematics can be used to model biochemical systems.
- To confidently use lab equipment, prepare and dilute solutions, and quantitatively analyse data.
