PHYM 7102 Selected Topics in Physiology: Oxidant and Antioxidant Mechanisms in Health and Disease ()


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. Open to other MS and PhD students. The specific focus of this course will be oxidant or antioxidant processes that participate in the redox regulation of physiological or pathophysiological mechanisms controlling systems such as vascular function, inflammatory systems driving pathophysiology, actions or consequences of hypoxia, neuronal control, cellular aspects of metabolic regulation, and other key roles of redox control.

Prerequisites: BCHM 1010. Enrollment is limited to 9 students

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