Summary

 

Integrative Cell Biology - LIFE95012

Aims

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.

Role

Lecturer

Biological Chemistry and Microbiology - LS1-BCM

Aims

  • 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.
