Toxicology  BIOL 4440
This course is an introduction to the principles and mechanisms of toxicology as applied to toxicants encountered in the environment. The fundamentals of toxicology covered will include dose-response relationships, absorption of toxicants, distribution and storage of toxicants, metabolism and elimination of toxicants, as well as toxicity to specific target organs. Fate and transport of environmental contaminants will be covered, as well as examination of specific classes of toxicants. Toxicity testing and regulation of toxicants will be included.

Anatomy and Physiology BIOL 2221/2222
The course begins with cellular chemistry and function, tissues, and continues through the nervous, skeletal and muscular systems.Homeostasis and structural and functional relationships will be emphasized. Emphasizes homeostasis and structural and functionalrelationships in the study of cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, digestive, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Primarily recommendedfor students interested in nursing, physical therapy and health, physical education, and sports science. Cannot be used for credit toward a degree in Biology.

Cell Biology BIOL 3410

This course builds upon biological concepts taught in introductory biology BIOL1107 and genetics BIOL 3300.  The course will examine biochemical and molecular mechanisms. In addition, cellular structure, transport and signaling will be addressed.

Histology BIOL 3338K

This course examines mammalian tissues.  The course discusses the morphological differences between major tissue types in the context of understand specific function. The laboratory component uses microscopy to examine prepared slides of mammalian tissues and focuses on key visual components that aid in their identification.
