Other information

There are 24 half-hour lectures in the series, so Dr Gillian Wood will present 2 lectures each session with half an hour for questions.

The course is given by an American general surgeon, Professor Anthony Goodman from Montana State University.

The course covers the fundamentals of cell biology, normal body function and cell injury. It also covers – at the molecular, cellular and total body level – the inflammatory response and the immune response, which are the body’s responses to external and internal challenges such as microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, parasites), trauma, shock and cancer (the enemy within). Finally, it covers the healing of the body.
