The enrolment is done by the D-BIOL study administration.
This course aims to provide students with a comprehensive overview of mammalian developmental biology and stem cell systems both on the theoretical as well as the experimental level. Centering the course on genetic and genomic methods engages the students in contemporary research and prepares for future studies in the course of semester and master projects.
- Understanding mammalian development - Introduction to stem cells systems - Working with cultured cells - Translational aspects of mammalian cell biology
The course will consist of a series of lectures, assay assignments, project development and discussion workshops, and 2 and a half week of lab work with different mammalian cell systems embedded in real life research projects. At the end of the course students will take an exam consisting of questions on the topic of the lectures and workshops. It is expected that students will be able to apply the knowledge to concrete problems.
