Course Delivery Information
|Not being delivered|
| The lectures in this course provide a detailed background into the fundamental processes that underpin the varied events occurring in reproductive tissues. By the end of the course students will be able to:
¿ Describe the cellular, molecular and biochemical basis of the fundamental control mechanisms in reproductive systems.
¿ Explain, compare and contrast the similarities and differences between reproductive control mechanisms in males and females.
¿ Critically evaluate the importance of particular molecular and biochemical processes and how dysfunction in these may lead to disease, infertility or reproductive failure.
