Principles of Bioenergetics

by Kevin Ahern, PhD, Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Transforming organic matter into a usable form of energy is a complex process. This course will guide learners through the critical steps of the various mechanisms used to create, store, and burn biological energy sources. They will be able to understand which energy source an organism chooses to utilize and how that organism may switch to storing energy in various anabolic pathways.

Dr. Ahern
By Fadi J. on 22. November 2023 for Electron Carriers – Oxidation and Reduction in Metabolism

Dr. Ahern is amazing at linking what he's about to teach to previous videos.

By Chad-Solomon D. on 18. January 2020 for Laws of Thermodynamics

I believe the term is entropy is misused in this lecture.

Borhr effect explained good.
By Daysi B. on 15. January 2020 for Bohr Effect

Excellent lecture. Understood Bohr effect better than ever. I love these lectures.

Now I understand it
By Wendy D. on 17. December 2019 for Definition of Energy

I like how Dr. Cornwall recaps chemistry and relation to energy to cells. Her hand motions help with my learning and understanding. Thank you.
