Clinical Biochemistry

What's Involved?

The fundamentals of biochemistry learned in Evolution and Life are concentrated on areas of clinical interest, such as, haematology, endocrinology, obesity, and diabetes. The structure of the extracellular matrix and its impact on tissue form and resiliency is considered and an understanding that alterations and diseases of these minute structures in the body can have a profound effect on health.

Student Experience

Lectures integrate learning on cellular metabolism and cell biology into the medical dimension of human physiology and pathology. Clinical and biochemical data are integrated into cases, illustrating how a diagnoses and treatment plan can be derived.

Clinical topics were very stimulating, interesting and will be useful in future.

An enjoyable, challenging and worthwhile module.
