INTERNATIONAL MASTER: FROM MOLECULAR DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY TO BIOMEDICINE, EVOLUTION AND SYSTEMS BIOLOGY


UNIVERSITY OF LISBON


Animal models in Biomedical research
3 ECTS


PRESENTATION

The evolutionnary conservation across eukaryotes of many genes and genetic pathways involved in basic cellular and developmental processes, has had a great impact in our way of approaching basic research and therapeutics. The systematic and widespread usage of animals models has propelled research on the fundamental mechanisms underlying human disease. This course aims at dissecting the advantages and limitations of this approach by reviewing case-studies in several animal models and pathologies with varying degrees of complexity. Examples will span from the fruit-fly and zebrafish in the study of cancer, regeneration , would-healing or diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzeihmer, to the use of mouse and rat in these and other neurodegenerative disorders, malaria and auto-immunity.
