OVERVIEW

The main aim of the course is to provide an overview of the cell as a functional autonomous unit and as a component of more complex structures, as well as to provide the basis of Human Anatomy necessary to understand physiology, with the final goal to be able to understand drug action mechanism and related toxicity.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of the molecular mechanisms supporting the principal cell functions (from morphology and internal organization up to gene expression regulation, generation of differentiated cell lineages and genetic traits transmission). 

Proper attention will be given to the human body organization and to the morphology of different systems and organs. The structure of the various organs will be studied at microscopic level to provide understanding of their function.

PREREQUISITES

Basis of biology and chemistry from secondary school
