BPK 382 - Workplace Health (3)

The focus of this course will be the study of the physical environment and its effects on the health, safety and performance of the worker. Physical problems associated with noise, vibration, lighting, radiation, dust and ventilation will be examined together with methods of recognition, treatment, protection and prevention. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 142, 201, 205. Students with credit for KIN 382 may not repeat this course for further credit. Quantitative.

BPK 402 - Mechanical Behavior of Biological Tissues (3)

Extension of BPK 201 provides students with an understanding of structure-function relations in musculoskeletal tissues (bone, cartilage and muscle) in health and disease. Includes effect of disease and aging on physiological and biomechanical properties, mechanics and prevention of tissue injury, and design of implants and prostheses. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 201. Students with credit for KIN 402 may not take this course for further credit.

BPK 420 - Selected Topics in Kinesiology I (3)

Selected topics in areas not currently offered as formal courses within the undergraduate course offerings in the School of Kinesiology. The topics in this course will vary from term to term, depending on faculty availability and student interest. Prerequisite: To be announced in the Undergraduate Schedule of Classes and Examinations.

Prerequisite: To be announced in the Undergraduate Schedule of Classes and Examinations.

BPK 431 - Integrative Cancer Biology (3)

Core concepts in cancer biology ranging from the clinical and pathological basis of carcinogenesis to the molecular and cellular changes involved in cancer development. Emphasis will be on the complex interactions of lifestyle factors, genetics and social cultural determinants on cancer risk. Prerequisite: MBB 231 (or MBB 201) and at least 90 units. Students with credit for KIN 431 may not complete this course for further credit.

BPK 458 - Prevention and Management of Cardiovascular Disease (3)

A multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the pathology, risk factors and treatments for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease. Physical examination, as well as non-invasive cardiac imaging techniques will be discussed and demonstrated. Both theoretical and practical perspectives inform the course's approach to the principles of behavioural change (diet, physical exercise, and smoking cessation) and risk factor management. Prerequisite: BPK(or KIN) 305 or HSCI 321. Students with credit for HSCI 471 or BPK 421 (Fall 2013) may not complete this course for further credit. Credit will not be given for both BPK 458 and HSCI 458.

BPK 461 - Physiological Aspects of Aging (3)

Designed for those who require a serious but fairly broad discussion of specific physiological aspects of aging. The overall emphasis is on humans and other mammalian species and the varieties of aging changes they manifest. Prerequisite: BPK (or KIN) 105 or 205 (formerly KIN 100), 142 and 90 units.
