This course will introduce to students the physiological functions of the human body from cells, tissues, organs to body systems, followed by examining the pathophysiological alterations in body functions that lead to different diseases and disorders. The integrated approach of this course is designed to stimulate students' interest in how different body organ systems work together to accomplish whole body function, and how diseases occur when the homeostatic balance is lost. The biochemical profiles and diagnostic methods commonly used for health monitoring and disease detection will be covered. This course will be delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and practical classes. SBMS2107 and SBMS2108 are Part I and II of the course, respectively.
