PHCY 1100 - Biochemistry




Cr Hrs: 2.5 (2.5-0-0)
PD

Biochemistry, a required course in the PharmD curriculum, is designed to provide students with foundational knowledge of the basic concepts of biochemistry that are pertinent for understanding the biochemical basis of disease and the molecular underpinnings of drug action. Topics covered in the course include: structure and properties of nucleic acids, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates as the biological macromolecules essential to life; enzyme catalysis and inhibition; structure and function of biological membranes; major metabolic pathways and their regulation; and basic principles of signal transduction. Presentations of clinical correlates such as molecular alterations in selected human diseases and examples of drug therapies discussed in a biochemical context are incorporated to highlight the clinical aspects of biochemistry and to demonstrate the importance of biochemistry for pharmacists.
