This unit aims to develop students’ knowledge of the biological and physiological basis of human growth and development across the lifespan. Fundamentals of cell biology and metabolism will be applied to physiological changes occurring during foetal life, followed by the postnatal, infancy, childhood, adolescence and ageing life stages. The fundamentals of genetics and inheritance of human traits will be developed with an emphasis on inborn errors of metabolism and polymorphisms affecting nutrient needs.
