Because cells are the fundamental units of life, the study of Cell Biology will help students to achieve a coherent understanding of all the forms of life, from the molecular level through whole cells to tissues and organs. This course focuses on cell structure and its functions and will cover topics such as membrane structure and composition, transport, and trafficking; cellular energetics; the cytoskeleton and cell movement; and the integration of cells into tissues. Important cellular processes such as the cell cycle and cancer cell biology are also provided in this lecture. Examples of relevant human disorders will also be discussed to help students understand what happens when cells work abnormally. The format of the course will include the lectures (which can be found in the reference textbook), the group presentation, assignments, laboratory report, and exams.
