Course content

See under "Learning outcome".

Learning outcome

By attending the course, the student will achieve:

Knowledge:

The course provides the student with a detailed and comprehensive knowledge of cell biology, and how cellular processes control development and tissue homeostasis (see also "Criteria for exam assessment"). The course also presents an overview of specified cellular signaling pathways as well as the latest research within selected cell biological areas and their significance in human health and disease.

Skills:

The course covers theoretical and experimental knowledge mainly based on text books and in part on key papers in cell biology, including both reviews and original articles. This will enable the student to analyze, interpret and evaluate experimental data obtained from cell biological research that covers the criteria for exam assessment (please see "Criteria for exam assessment").

Competences:

The student is competent to understand, interpret and integrate the complexity of cell biology. For achieving extensive proficiencies in cellular communication and signaling pathway interactions it is recommended to continue with the Block 2 course: Cellular Signalling in Health and Disease.

Recommended prerequisites

It is recommended that students taking this course have a basic knowledge in cell biology corresponding to the bachelor level.
