Course Description

This is an advanced course in the biochemistry and physiology of micronutrients. Students are expected to be familiar with the material covered in an introductory nutrition course as well as graduate biochemistry, and have a basic familiarity with physiology. The course covers fat soluble nutrients, water soluble nutrients, and minerals. Topics that will be covered include nutrient bioavailability, transport, function at biochemical and physiological levels, measurements of nutrients and nutrient status, and current controversies. Lectures will be provided in face-to-face format. In-class activities in addition to lectures will include team based learning (TBL) and each student will provide both brief and more detailed presentations or discussions.
