My Courses

BIO3601Biochemistry

BIO3601Biochemistry

This course adopts an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the fundamentals of biochemistry, including an introduction to the basic concepts and most common research methods. The focus will be upon the major macromolecules and chemical properties of the living systems. The goal is the development of an integrated appreciation of how biomolecules act and interact to catalyze reactions, to synthesize and degrade biomolecules, and utilize or release energy. Both catabolic and biosynthetic pathways will be discussed. The biochemistry underlying the conversion of information contained in DNA to cellular macromolecules through replication, transcription and translation will be covered. Primary topics include the structure, function and metabolism of amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids and lipids; the physical properties of water, pH, buffers and enzyme kinetics; DNA replication and gene regulation.

My Clubs

BioMedical Informatics Student Club

BioMedical Informatics Student Club

The Biomedical Informatics (BIB) Student club exists to advocate, provide support and services to fellow Biomedical Informatics undergraduate students here at New York City College of Technology. We aim to assist students in gaining opportunities and discovering information that is relevant and beneficial towards the degree requirement of the program. Through the expansion of knowledge, workshops, field trips and invited speakers, we hope to give students the option to network and attain skills required for classes including the internship. This is a student-run club which is advised by faculty members, Professor Eugenia Giannopoulou and Professor Mai Zahran.

New Faculty Orientation 2014-2015

New Faculty Orientation 2014-2015

This is a private group for new hires participating in the New Faculty Seminar series for the 2014-2015 academic year. The members of the group are composed of the seminar leaders as well as the faculty. This group will be used as the main communication site between all participants and facilitators and as a repository for the documents made available throughout the seminar series.
