May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course specifically focuses on the molecular, structural and functional properties of membranes and of their relationship to cell physiology. Topics include membrane structure and trafficking, water and solute transport across membranes/cells, mechanisms of ion channel gating and conduction, the basis of membrane/cell electrical excitability, propagation of electrical signals through cell networks, and the activation and dynamics of calcium signaling. The course emphasizes a quantitative approach to understanding cell and membrane physiology. The subject matter of the course is addressed through lectures, as well as via a number of problem sets that illustrate quantitative analysis of membrane and cell physiology and enhance appreciation and understanding of the subject material. The molecular and functional aspects of membrane and cell physiology are also discussed within the framework of tissue and organ physiology and pathology. When relevant, clinical correlations are incorporated in the lecture material to illustrate the importance of the information to biomedical science research.
