IFN 5681 - Systems Biology I

Course Description:   Systems Biology explains the physiology, pathophysiology and applicable biochemistry that underlie the seven core imbalances within functional medicine.  Understanding the physiological systems, and how they become unbalanced, is key to identifying and supporting interventions that address chronic disease.   In Systems Biology I, students explore cardiovascular function; immunity and inflammation; digestion, absorption, and elimination.  They examine how core imbalances within these systems contribute to chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, autoimmunity, food allergy and intolerance, and gastrointestinal disorders.
