cades, the cytoskeleton and cell adhesion, transcription factors and genetic cascades, and the multiple roles of individual proteins and cross-talk between different pathways (beta catenin for example).

  • Biomedical Systems: a bioengineering/biophysics approach to human physiology. Topics would include organ physiology, hormones and endocrine loops, paracrine effects, systems analysis of control loops, the importance of temporal aspects of hormones, and examples such as cardiac control loops and circadian rhythms.

  • Biological Motors and Molecular Machines.
