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

Cell and Developmental Biology - LIFE95005

Aims

The course aims to provide an integrated understanding of the regulation of development in animals and plants. Studies will focus especially on the underlying cellular and molecular biology processes. Particular attention will be given to the initiation and regulation of recognisable developmental features of animal and plant body plans during embryogenesis and in later life. Selected case studies will consider recent research breakthroughs, the role of the environment in development and how organisms interact to modify each others’ development.
