Content

SLE323 is designed for students to apply knowledge of biology and physiology in the fields of health, nutrition and fitness. In this unit, students will examine possible genetic and environmental causes of a limited number of common diseases: hypertension, stroke, myocardial infarction, hepatitis, peptic ulceration, arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease. By applying scientific thinking, students will expand on their knowledge of body systems by exploring the causes of disease, the malfunctions that occur to these body systems in the presence of disease and the consequences of these changes at a molecular and cellular level. This unit covers current concepts, controversies and latest methodological advances in human biology, to develop graduates as professionals. Students will develop critical awareness of biomedical science concepts and the ability to exercise independent and scientifically justified views.
