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


UNIVERSITY OF POMPEU FABRA (BARCELONA)


Molecular and Cellular Pathology
6 ECTS

PRESENTATION

This course will explore the mechanisms and processes utilized by eukaryotic cells to respond and adapt to stress. Stress is understood in a wide sense, as disturbances in the extracellular environment or intracellular conditions that deviate from normality and trigger a compensatory or adaptive response. These responses activate signaling cascades and transcriptional programs that enable cells to cope with stress and maintain their viability and functions. Since stress can threaten the genetic stability of the cell, stress responses often impinge on the cell cycle, cellular metabolism, viability and death and are relevant in cancer and other diseases.

The course will be mainly based on the analysis and discussion of problems, with a proportion of introductory lectures and research seminars that will help to situate the context and current views on the problems being discussed. Problems will be prepared as cases or from published articles and will be given to the students, together with the relevant material, at the beginning of the course. Students are expected to actively engage in discussion and problem solving individually and in groups.
