dc.description.abstractThis work has been developed as part of the Endocrinology and Metabolism student’s laboratory formation from Biology degree at the University of Murcia. Endocrinology and Metabolism is an elective oneterm course that is taught in the fourth year (4.5 ECTS) for "Biosanitary and Biotechnology" intensification. The course focuses on the study of global and intermediary human metabolism and hormonal regulation, both under normal and special situations. It is our objective to get undergraduate students of Endocrinology and Metabolism with the importance of hormonal diurnal fluctuations in endocrine systems through their involvement in an innovative research program. In addition, with the participation of PhD student in this program, we try to improve their skills in innovative teaching. In humans cortisol circadian rhythm peaks in the morning and shows the lowest levels during the midnight. This fluctuation of cortisol plasma level is reflected in saliva, allowing a simple, non invasive and unstressful sample collection. The influence of different factors, exercise, schedule and weekend shifts, on the rhythmic pattern of cortisol has been studied along various years.eng
