Medical Biochemistry At A Glance
Medical Biochemistry at a Glance will appeal to medical students in the early years of their course, and those revising for final exams. The book is also suitable for biological science and biochemistry students.
Medical Biochemistry at a Glance
Medical Biochemistry enables readers to master the essentials of human metabolism by explaining how metabolic pathways and reactions are connected to human health and disease. Rather than cover all the reactions that human cells and tissues are capable of executing, this text better enables readers to learn core concepts by emphasizing select examples that illustrate the physiologic and pathophysiologic significance of the major metabolic pathways. Designed for medical, dental, and allied health students and professionals, the text emphasizes clinically relevant information, helping readers understand the interrelationships between metabolic pathways and the links between metabolism and the causes, preventions, and cures for human diseases.
Robert H. Glew, PhD, is Emeritus Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of New Mexico Medical School. Dr. Glew has taught medical biochemistry at three medical schools in the United States and a medical school in West Africa.
Written by carefully selected global experts, practicing physicians, and educators in the various sub-disciplines of biochemistry, Medical Biochemistry, 6th Edition, offers a unique combination of research and clinical practice tailored to today's integrated courses. Covering clinically relevant topics in greater detail than other texts, this outstanding resource provides a strong overview of traditional areas in medical biochemistry along with state-of-the-art coverage of today's latest developments. You'll learn basic science concepts alongside clinical cases that describe patients likely to be encountered in clinical training, as well as how to use laboratory tests to diagnose and monitor the most important conditions. Thorough yet accessible, this clinically focused text is useful from medical school to clinical practice.
Highlights the latest developments in regulatory and molecular biology, signal transduction, age-related chronic disease, epigenetics, and bioinformatics and the "-omics," as well as important global medical issues such as diabetes mellitus, obesity and malnutrition, cancer and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, and nutrition and exercise.
Contains organ-focused chapters addressing the biochemistry of the bone, kidney, liver, lungs and muscle; and system-focused chapters on the biochemistry of the immune and endocrine systems, neurochemistry and neurotransmission, and cancer.
The dual degree program double counts some classes from the medical school curriculum (as is done in the MSTP program) so that only 9 additional hours of formal class work needs to be accomplished for the MS.
Details of both medical and clinical biochemist training programs reveal a difference in emphasis and duration rather than in course content, with medical trainees required to spend at least 1 of their 4 training years in clinical disciplines relevant to the practice of biochemistry.
It is the mission of the Graduate Medical Biochemistry Certificate Program to provide working professionals and post-baccalaureate students with an understanding of medical biochemistry, forensic biotechnology and underlying genetic deficiencies of common metabolic disorders. Our Program faculty provide students with individualized coaching, instruction and advising to assist them in understanding medical biochemistry concepts that will help them achieve their long-term goals.
The School of Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences at the University of Mississippi Medical Center offers an online Certificate in Graduate Medical Biochemistry. The Certificate can be completed entirely online, with asynchronous courses and no campus visit requirements. This makes it convenient for pre-professional healthcare students or current working professionals interested in enhancing or transitioning into biochemistry-related careers to complete this Program. Our Program format includes (but is not limited to) video lectures, group discussions, projects, problem sets, case studies, quizzes, and exams, all conducted through the online learning platform Canvas.
The Certificate in Graduate Medical Biochemistry is comprised of courses covering the fundamentals of medical biochemistry and delving into the biochemistry of selected diseases. We recommend completing more than the required 11 hours to enhance your health-profession school application and to diversify your medical biochemistry career prospects.
The online, asynchronous courses that make up our Certificate in Graduate Medical Biochemistry are designed to enhance your knowledge and skills within the medical biochemistry field and give you the foundational knowledge of biochemistry required in clinical, educational, and professional settings. Our Program offers the following courses:
This is a combined major at the interface of biology and chemistry that partially overlaps the requirements for those two individual majors. It is particularly appropriate for those going on to graduate work and also provides a strong background for those entering medical, dental, and veterinary school.
We work with the V-ATPases from the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast) as well as human. We are using the tools of biochemistry, molecular & cell biology, biophysics and structural biology (including NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography and cryo electron microscopy (cryoEM)) to obtain structural and mechanistic information. Our long term goal is to elucidate the mechanism of V-ATPase's unique mode of regulation and find ways for therapeutic targeting of the enzyme in the disease state.
Metabolism at a Glance presents a concise, illustrated summary of metabolism in health and disease. This essential text is progressively appropriate for introductory through to advanced medical and biochemistry courses. It also provides a succinct review of inborn errors of metabolism, and reference for postgraduate medical practitioners and biomedical scientists who need a resource to quickly refresh their knowledge.Fully updated and extensively illustrated, this new edition of Metabolism at a Glance is now in full colour throughout, and includes new coverage of sports biochemistry; the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates and cholesterol; glyceroneogenesis, alpha-oxidation and omega-oxidation of fatty acids. It also features the overlooked "Krebs Uric Acid Cycle".Metabolism at a Glance offers an accessible introduction to metabolism, and is ideal as a revision aid for students preparing for undergraduate and USMLE Step 1 exams. 041b061a72
