Liberty MSCI 500 Foundations of Biomedical Sciences Entire Class


Course Description

This course employs the exploration of the molecular, genetic, biochemical, and cellular basis of human oncogenesis, tumor metastasis, cancer detection, and therapeutic advances as a comprehensive background for understanding and engaging the field of biomedicine. It provides a solid foundation in the basic biomedical principles that serve as the framework for advancing medical science including genetics, cellular anatomy, metabolism, and cell signaling.

For information regarding prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.


Introduction To Biomedical Sciences is designed for students who either do not have prior exposure to these courses: Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, and Anatomy/Physiology or need to remediate any course in the MS Biomedical Sciences program. It aims to give the students an in-depth introduction to the basic medical sciences that form the foundations for understanding the normal functions of the human body and disease states as well as therapeutic approaches to these diseases. Cancer remains a biomedical puzzle and its complexity and span provide an encompassing viewpoint to studying biomedical sciences. This approach will give the students a huge appreciation of the beautiful design of the human body by God the Almighty Creator of all things!

Course Requirements Checklist

After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in the Course Overview.

Discussions (2)

Discussions are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student is required to create a thread in response to the provided promptly for each Discussion. Each thread must be at least 500 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge. In addition to the thread, the student is required to reply to 2 other classmates’ threads. Each reply must be 250 words.

Scientific Paper Assignments (5)

The student will give detailed and well-constructed responses to the assigned scientific writing topics for each week according to the specific outlines provided. The length of each writing will be specified for each week.

Video Presentation Assignment

As the last project for this course, the student will produce a 10-minute video presentation on the Molecular Basis of Cancer.

Quizzes (8)

Each quiz will cover the Reading & Study material for the assigned modules/weeks. Each quiz will be open-book/open-notes.
