A cross-sectional study of human cells and their specialized functions. The function of neurons, adipocytes, myocytes, epithelial cells, endothelia cells and other cell types will be explored. Current literature will be used when possible. Prerequisite: CELL 201 or BIOL 201.


CELL 402 - The Birth and Death of a Cell

An advanced course dealing with cell differentiation, intracellular and extracellular signaling processes, the cell cycle, apoptosis and necrosis. Consists of lecture material and small group learning sessions. Topics include stem cell research, cancer therapy and human disorders involving cell death (e.g., Alzheimer's and cardiovascular disease). Requires reading and discussion of current research articles. Prerequisite: CELL 201 or BIOL 201 and any 300-level Science course (CELL 3xx or BIOCH 3xx recommended) or consent of Department.


CELL 502 - The Birth and Death of a Cell

An advanced course dealing with cell differentiation, intracellular and extracellular signaling processes, the cell cycle, apoptosis and necrosis. Consists of lecture material and small group learning sessions. Topics include stem cell research, cancer therapy and human disorders involving cell death (e.g. Alzheimer's and cardiovascular disease). Will require reading and discussion of current research articles. Lectures are the same as for CELL 402 but with additional assignments and evaluation appropriate to graduate studies.
