Learning Objectives

The course of Biochemistry aims to provide to the students the basis to understanding the physical, chemical and biological contexts in which molecules, reactions and metabolic pathways play their role. Particular attention will be given to the structure and function relationship of the major classes of macromolecules as also to the metabolic regulation at the molecular and cellular level.

In order to stimulate student interest the topics will be explained emphasizing the logical and consequential interconnections emphasizing Inglese
the clinical aspects and introducing experimental methods.
At the end of the present course the student will understand the structure-function relationships of the main biological molecules, essential biochemical mechanisms that underlie a proper metabolic function and the consequences of their alterations.


Course Structure

Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.

Learning assessment may also be carried out on line, should the conditions require it.”



Detailed Course Content

In particular the course of Biochemistry will be devoted to clarificy molecular meccanism envolved during the study of ormonal and metabolic approaches in order to better underline the cross-talk between

molecules that play a pivotal role in understanding the targets for the objectives to be analyzed set by biochemistry. and molecular biology.
