IFN 5688 - Advanced Nutritional Biochemistry--Macronutrients

Understanding root cause of disease requires an understanding of cellular metabolism and the network of pathways that connect systems. This course takes an applied approach to studying how biochemical reactions of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins within the cell affect whole body health.  Homeostatic mechanisms regulating macronutrient metabolism and the cellular and systemic responses to nutritional imbalances are studied in the context of several common diseases. Methods to assess macronutrient requirements and status are incorporated throughout the course.
