Current Established Course Syllabus

  • English
  • If sufficient demand
  • Cellular processes are often targets for the treatment of disease. Products of cellular processes are often used for medical analysis of processes or disease states. A basic understanding of such processes is therefore of critical importance for the development and application of new tools in this field. In this course cellular processes in eukaryotic cells are studied and discussed to create a basis for research activities around such processes.
  • The course aims to give students an insight into cellular processes and their regulation
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • * be able to provide a detailed description and analysis of basic components and processes in eukaryotic cells and interactions of cells
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • * be able to provide a detailed reflection on cellular processes and be able to explain experimental observations of cellular processes
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • * to demonstrate a willingness to adequately present, question and debate scientific knowledge and theories in the field of cell biology
Types of Instruction
  • Exercises
  • Problem-based learning related to 10 problems defined by the examiner
Examination Formats
  • Miscellaneous
  • Active participation in problem based learning groups at a level relevant for the learning objectives. If required (due to absence from study group meetings): written reports. If the level is in doubt: oral exam.
  • Failed, pass
Admission Requirements
  • Admitted as doctoral student or expected to be admitted as doctoral student
Assumed Prior Knowledge
  • Basic knowledge of cellular and molecular biology (first cycle)
Selection Criteria
  • 1. Students in reserach subjects that in its general curiculum indicates the course as mandatory or one of a few mandatory alternatives.
  • Alberts, B.: Molecular biology of the cell.
  • Additional literature is selcted jointly by the students and the examiner in connection with problem based learning group activities.
Further Information
  • Will normally be given every second fall term (if at least 6 students will take the course; may also be given with fewer students). Not more than 10 students will be admitted any given semester. Will be given in Swedish unless students that have the course as mandatory or as a mandatory alternative in their general curriculum and that cannot communicate effectively in Swedish attend the course.
