Course description and aims

In this course, students can attend lectures delivered by invited life science researchers actively engaged in cutting-edge research. Lectures cover the background/basics of addressed topics, as well as examining the latest developments in each field of research. This course allows students to acquire an understanding of hot research topics as well as apply this knowledge in their own research projects.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1. Explain a number of hot topics in Life Science research, from fundamental knowledge to cutting edge developments in research.
2. Enhance their own research activities by drawing on examples of high-quality and relevant research.

Keywords

Cell biology, Nucleus, Genome, DNA repair, Chromosome segregation, Lysosome, Vacuole, Mitochondria, Senescence, Cancer, Autophagy

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
