Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) - Biochemistry of Infection and Immunity (ESM) at Western University : Tuition Fee: $33,526.00 CAD / Year (Scholarship Available)
Biochemistry is the study of molecules and mechanisms in living organisms. In biochemistry we explore the structure and function of the key biomolecules (proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids) that allow the growth and development of all organisms. The study of biological processes helps us to understand diseases and to see ways to a healthier existence.
This module integrates the study of the related fields of biochemistry, microbiology, and immunology to give students an understanding of the molecular mechanisms by which microorganisms attack human host cells, and by which the human host responds.
