Organisation and examination

Teaching in the first semester, review in January


Schedule online

Units courses prerequisite and corequisite

Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

Learning unit contents

The course describes the basis of cell function regulations (apoptosis, proliferation, differentiation, transcriptional activity) by presenting the different signaling pathways. The topics are: - main signaling pathways - the apoptotic process - the extracellular matrix and intracellular signaling - cell migration and invasion
- cell regulation by siRNA and miRNA
- signaling pathways an DNA repair

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

At the end, the student will know the main signaling pathways and how they contribute to the regulation of cell functions in physiological and pathological conditions.
