Advances in Cellular Regulation University of Tsukuba
The objective of this class is to learn basic knowledge and the latest research progress on regenerative medicine and stem cell biology fields by reading original articles. In addition, this class aims to improve individual ability to extract the point at issue of the article and discuss with other participants.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to discuss current topics of regenerative medicine, developmental biology, stem cell biology and cancer biology in relation to their own research.
Expertise,English language proficiency
The performance of each student is evaluated as a point from 0 to 100 based on report . The final grade A+, A, B, C, or D is determined by the weighted average of all the points earned through the term. A+: >90, A: 80-89, B: 70-79, C: 60-69, D: <60
