The theory part comprises comprehensive theoretical knowledge of the most central parts of modern Molecular Cell Biology. The course also covers the concept of malignant cell growth and provides examples of molecular mechanisms behind tumor progression. The students will be given training in oral presentation of mini-case and study questions during four sessions. The practical part of the course is an application of the theoretical part and includes work in model systems and methodology for cell biological studies. A consistent theme is that participants will receive training in independently planning experiments and analyses. The student will also be given training in how to compile an individual laboratory report to be presented in the same format as a scientific article.
20 ECTS from finished courses in Chemistry, including at least 5 ECTS in Biochemistry, or alternatively, 20 ECTS from a combination of finished courses in Chemistry and Physics and/or Mathematics, including at least 5 ECTS in Biochemistry; 20 ECTS from finished courses in Biology, containing Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Genetics.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
