Assumed knowledge on:

HAP-20306 Human and Animal Biology 2. Structure and function of (normal) cells and tissues; basic principles of embryology and physiology of vital organs

Continuation courses:

HNE-35306 General Medicine

Contents:

- the course deals with the biological principles that play an important role in the cause and clinical appearance of diseases that are related to nutrition;
- specific diseases will be discussed to illustrate and clarify these principles, their history will be studied and clues for prevention and treatment will be indicated.

Learning outcomes:

After participation the student:
- can indicate relevant biological mechanisms that underlie major chronic nutrition-related diseases;
- has basic knowledge of disease processes, and how these affect cell structure and function and thereby cause cell and tissue damage; the student is able to recognize damage patterns in tissue sections;
- is able to describe the impact of these disturbances on vital physiological functions and how therapeutical interventions may be selected.

Activities:

Lectures, response lectures, practicals, selfstudy.

Examination:

Individual written test at the end of the course.
