BIOM*4030 Endocrine Physiology W (3-0) [0.50]
The course is designed to provide a senior level introduction to the endocrine discipline, focusing largely on mammals, with some examples taken from other vertebrate taxa. The course will give an introduction to the historical developments in the discipline, explore the actions of hormones and other chemical signalling pathways, and examine processes of hormone synthesis and secretion. The focus of the course will be the integrative nature of hormone actions in the regulations of various physiological processes in animal systems, such as metabolic control, growth, and reproduction. The course will also explore aspects of "non-classical" endocrinology, endocrine dysfunctional states and emerging environmental concerns related to endocrine dysfunction.
