PHGY 170/3.0 Human Cell Physiology

Course applicable to the following Majors / Medials/ Minors:    Faculty of Health Sciences
Course Instructors: Dr. Christopher Ward and Dr. Cynthia Pruss.
This course is available in:   Fall term at the BISC
Course Prerequisites / Exclusions:   There are no prerequisites for this course. However, it is recommended that students have 4U Biology or equivalent.
EXCLUSION: PHGY 170/3.0 May not be taken with or after KNPE 225/3.0.

PHGY170 will deepen your understanding of cellular physiology beyond what you may recall from High School. This course will provide a strong foundation in the physiology of the cell, which will be applicable to upper year courses in physiology, biochemistry, and other health sciences.

 BETH RICHAN, COURSE DIRECTOR, BISC 

Course Highlights:

Gain a fundamental understanding of the inner workings of the basic unit of life: the cell.

Collaborate with your peers in discussion groups to extend course concepts - Create your own presentations and critically evaluate others.

PHGY 170/3.0 Human Cell Physiology

PHGY 170, Human Cell Physiology is an introductory level course on the structure and function of human cells for students interested in pursuing human health-related disciplines. Students will also learn the principles of energy metabolism, cell growth and proliferation, and how cells interact with their environment. There is also an overall focus to relate cellular processes to human function and disease, culminating in a presentation focused on one specific cell process and how it affects health. Students taking this course will be well-prepared for upper year molecular biology courses

Learning Outcomes

After completing PHGY 170, students will be able to:

  • To identify and describe basic cellular components to be able to characterize their roles in the structure and function of human cells
  • To integrate a basic understanding of cellular processes to articulate how human cells interact with their environment
  • To recognize key principles of human cell function in order to understand the cellular basis of health and disease
  • Understand how cells, tissues, organs and systems work together in order identify and explain the mechanisms through which the body maintains homeostasis
