Synopsis: The subject examines the pathways by which cells receive external information and process this into specific biochemical responses. A diverse set of cellular processes is studied with the aim of highlighting the normal control mechanisms and the consequences of dysfunction. Themes include cell cycle, apoptosis, haematopoiesis are considered and similarities of molecular disease aetiology highlighted. Methods of clinical diagnosis are introduced and incorporated into the laboratory work, which is designed to illustrate concepts of the theory.
