Our bodies are made up of 60 to 100 trillion cells organized into tissues, organs and systems. To understand wellness and disease, it is essential to have an understanding of how these cells are made and what makes them work properly.
There are over 200 different cell types in humans. Although readily distinguishable, these cell types share many common features. In this presentation, Dr Murray will describes those features. The various structures in cells (e.g. the nucleus, mitochondrion, plasma membrane, etc) will be shown and their various functions indicated.
Through our understanding of cell structure and function, we will be better equipped to know what to do when things go wrong, health-wise.
