Date and Time: Fridays, 10:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Course Session and Course Dates: Winter 2019 - T.B.A.
Course ID.: Y28B01
This course covers advanced topics in epithelial (and endothelial) physiology. An emphasis is placed on the importance of epithelial (and endothelial) transport processes to the normal physiological function of organ systems, but all aspects of epithelial (and endothelial) physiology are open for consideration. Examples will be drawn broadly from metazoans and will include both vertebrate and invertebrate organisms. Modern approaches that consider epithelial physiology are to be highlighted.
Epithelial tissue is one of the four basic tissue types that compose all animals. Epithelial tissue covers all the free surfaces of metazoans (cutaneous, mucous, and serous, including the glands and other structures derived from these) while endothelial cells line blood and lymphatic vessels and the heart. This core course covers advanced topics in epithelial (and endothelial) physiology. An emphasis is placed on the importance of epithelial (endothelial) transport processes to the normal physiological function of organ systems, but all aspects of epithelial (and endothelial) physiology are open for consideration. Examples are drawn from both vertebrate and invertebrate organisms. Modern approaches are highlighted, but not at the expense of an understanding of classical approaches as well as a deep history of epithelial physiology.
Evaluation: Seminar 1- 30%; Seminar 2- 30%; Paper-40
Faculty Resources: The course will be offered every second year. This course will not adversely affect faculty resources.
