Module code

BS31020

This module will explore the responses to glucose/insulin and toxic insult by experimentation on cells in culture. The module will provide the you with an understanding of the various ways in which cells respond to their changing environment, show how our current understanding of cell biology has been arrived at using examples from current literature and via replicating classical in vitro experiments, and provide familiarity with some basic biochemical and microscopy techniques as applied to the investigation of cellular biology. It is expected that the module will enable the acquisition of skills, attitudes, techniques and knowledge useful in the pursuit of modern experimental biology.
