Medical and Biochemical Science 2 - BIOE50007
In this module you will build on your knowledge from Medical and Biochemical Science 1 module, and be introduced to new cellular and physiological concepts. The module aims to introduce you to further physiological systems with a strong emphasis on the nervous system and to introduce you to regulators and modulators of gene expression, i.e. genetics and epigenetics, with a specific focus on methylation. The module will also allow you to build competence with new wet lab skills and allow you to gain familiarity with a range of lab techniques that may be required in final year projects.
Medical Science 2 - BIOE50008
This module builds on the Medical and Biological Science 1 module. It introduces further physiological concepts and systems including the Nervous system, Musculoskeletal system, Endocrine system, Gastrointestinal system, Reproductive system and Renal system. You will learn about the control processes in these systems with a strong emphasis on the role of control, operational and design constraints in the nervous system.
