Introduction to Cell Biology

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Molecular and cell biology can be defined as the study of the biomolecules necessary to build and sustain the cells that make up living organisms, as well as of how a typical cell functions. Molecular and cellular biology is the cornerstone of the basic and clinical sciences in medical education. On this subject rests the ability to understand more-complex concepts of physiology, histology, embryology, and anatomy, as well as how normal processes can go awry and cause illness.

In this course, the student will be exposed to the basics of biomolecules and the most important principles of cellular functioning, including the structure of cells, the cell cycle, cell division, and gene expression.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to be familiar with the basic concepts of college-grade biology.

Important stuff!
By Kamran H. on 27. March 2023 for Chemical Behavior – Chemistry

Simply explained. Can't emphasize more how important this is

great review for a senior physician
By Arnold C. on 02. December 2022 for Introduction to Cell Biology

As a retired physician, still professing clinical subjects at a medical school, it is great to have an opportunity to revisit topics last studied in depth in the 1970s! It is presented in clear and digestible aliquots and in a logical sequence by qualified lecturers.

Thank you
