HLSC 2110U – Foundations in Clinical Biochemistry


A comprehensive study of human biochemistry which introduces major biomolecules and biopolymers, metabolic pathways, mechanisms of control, and gene function. This course will present how the basic principles of biochemistry underlie the normal physiological functions in humans. Topics will include nucleic acids, protein structure and function, enzymes, membranes, and lipid, nitrogen, and carbohydrate metabolism. This course will better prepare health sciences students to make informed decisions by providing them with the foundational biochemical knowledge underlying human health. The lecture component will be structured towards introductory human biochemistry. Tutorial topics for Medical Laboratory Sciences students will emphasize relevant clinical applications. Tutorial topics for Human Health Sciences students will emphasize biochemical pathways that occur in states of health and disease. A foundational knowledge of biochemistry will serve as the intellectual basis for advanced medical laboratory science courses or advanced human health sciences courses.
