Molecular and Cellular Biology of Disease I University of Tsukuba
This course provides an introduction to the principles of molecular and cellular biology and their connections to disease control. Lectures range from transcriptional regulation to models of diseases (in vivo) and provide insights into biological processes and the biological mechanisms underlying human diseases (e.g. cancer) and their physiology.
Students will gain knowledge that are essential in understanding the current state of transcriptional regulation, epigenetics, stem cell, and cancer research.
Expertise, English language proficiency
The students will be graded based on the reports submitted at the end of the course.
