Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Professor Ian Goodfellow at University of Cambridge.


The course "Cell Physiology: The Ultimate Guide to How Your Body Works" is a comprehensive exploration of the intricate world of cellular mechanisms and functions within the human body. Spanning across varying levels of complexity, this course delves into the fundamental aspects of cell structure and function, the dynamics of cell communication, energy production, and the regulation of cell cycles. As the course progresses, it transitions into more advanced concepts, exploring topics such as cellular differentiation, stress responses, immunology, cancer biology, and the interplay between cells. Moving to an expert level, the course navigates through cutting-edge areas, covering stem cells, regenerative medicine, gene editing, tissue engineering, and ethical considerations in cell research. Throughout the journey, it offers insights into the future possibilities and innovations in cell science, paving the way for a deep understanding of cell physiology and its applications in medicine and research.

At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the educator indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.

Cell Physiology: The Ultimate Guide to How Your Body Works, by Ian Goodfellow

  • Ian Goodfellow is Professor of Virology and Deputy Head of Department (Pathology). His research focuses on the mechanisms of RNA virus replication and pathogenesis as well as the identification of control measures for the prevention or treatment of infections. His lab established the use of reverse genetics to study the molecular basis of norovirus pathogenesis, developing the first infectious reverse genetics system for noroviruses and the study of no viruses remains their main focus. During the 2014-16 Ebola virus epidemic, Professor Goodfellow was involved in the establishment and running of one of the first diagnostic facilities in Sierra Leone before subsequently returning to establish an in-country next generation sequencing facility to enable rapid sequence analysis of Ebola viral samples. Professor Goodfellow now holds an honorary position at the University of Makeni, Sierra Leone where he has established a research facility for post-Ebola capacity building.
