BCHM 7102 Phytonutrients as Epigenetic and Metabolic Regulators of Cellular Functions in Normal and Disease States ()


Credits: 1

Course Description:

Being able to interpret primary literature and being effective communicators are necessary skills for individuals who participate in all aspects of scientific and health professions. The 7100 series courses will allow students to gain skills in reading scientific articles and to practice the art of communication (both oral and written) with their peers. Each 7100 series course will involve students to make a group presentation as well as write several short synopses of assigned research papers. Two 7100 series courses are required for students enrolled in the evening Master’s programs. The specific focus of this course is to assess advances in epigenetic and metabolic regulation of cellular functions and to integrate the current information with aspects of disease prevention and management using phytonutrient-based approaches.

Prerequisites: BCHM 1010. Enrollment is limited to 9 students. Open to other MS and PhD students.

Lectures and discussions: 2 hrs./session/selected wk. Letter-graded.
