Metabolism and Regulation

Metabolism and Regulation

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

This course covers the complex biochemical processes that allow living organisms to convert energy-dense fuels into utilizable forms. Students will learn the various metabolic pathways an organism can utilize, the important bioproducts that each of these cycles can generate, and ultimately the efficiency by which each of these pathways can produce usable energy.

Understanding these chemical processes is an incredibly important part of understanding general human physiology, disease processes that may alter the normal metabolism, and the development of medications that target specific steps in these pathways.
