This subject follows on from the preceding subject, "Physiology and Biochemistry of Sport and Exercise" and will extend the integrative understanding of the physiological, biochemical and molecular factors both regulating and responding to, exercise, training and specific environmental conditions. Special emphasis will be directed to consideration of iron metabolism, immune function, signal transduction, and the role of genotype and gene expression in the regulation of human phenotype in response to exercise-related stimuli and environmental stressors.
