Short Description:
Physiology of organisms is a course designed for undergraduate students who are majoring in biology or who are fulfilling their undergraduate requirements for the CUNY Medical School bachelors in medicine program. Physiology of organisms uses a systems level analysis to understand how single cell and multicellular organisms adapt and respond to environmental challenges. The course also introduces students to the tools and technologies used to measure physiological variables in multiple contexts. A laboratory component includes activities designed to apply the concepts and principles introduced by the instructor.
