Iron homeostasis – Online course

Please note that this resourse was designed to address key knowledge and skills in a previous sudy design so may go into greater detail than required for VCE Biology.


In this online course you will explore why you need dietary iron to stay healthy. You will view animations to investigate iron homeostasis and construct a stimulus-response model to represent your understanding of how iron levels in the blood are monitored and controlled. You will use your stimulus-response model to explore iron disorders and to diagnose an iron disorder in a patient.
