The track extends over the two semesters of the first year. It aims to introduce students to the basics needed to appreciate current thinking on the biochemical and molecular bases of human disease, as well as the biochemical basis of clinical investigations. Independent learning as a supplement to lectures is actively encouraged. Major topics include the structure and function of cells and tissues, energy production and utilisation, detoxification, cell and molecular biology, biochemical genetics and molecular medicine. These aspects are integrated with the teaching in the other two tracks.
