Nutritional Biochemistry with Community / Clinical Applications: Macronutrients

Course Details

Course Number
NUTB 205
Associated Faculty

Course Description

Students will explore the fundamental roles of nutrients in biological systems and the implications of macronutrient biological functions on food and nutrition policy. Emphasis will be placed on the function of nutrients as defined by their chemistry, interrelations among nutrient functions, mechanistic approaches in the analysis of nutrient‐disease relationships, and recent advances in the basic sciences related to nutrition and nutrient function. The course will integrate examples of community, clinical and public health policy applications throughout the term. Published journal articles from the peer reviewed literature, case histories, and public policy documents will form the basis for critical review and discussion.

NOTE: This is the first of a two course sequence (NUTB 205 (fall semester) and NUTB 305 (spring semester) – may be taken in either order). 


Prior completion of an undergraduate biochemistry course or its equivalent. This course is open only to students who are in the Blended Master of Nutrition Science and Policy Program.
