BIO 167: Insulin and carbohydrate metabolism in health and disease a history of advances 1850 to current

The quest to understand how the body uses sugar and the overlapping quest for a diabetes cure have resulted in discoveries in every branch of biology. Topics include insulin production, structure, and evolution; transduction of the insulin signal; transport of sugar into cells; sugar storage and release; how the brain transports and uses sugar; growth control; pancreas development; genetic and environmental causes of diabetes; engineering solutions to diabetes (artificial pancreas, stem cells), glucose homeostasis (modeling insulin action). Prerequisites: BIO 41, 42.
