Advanced Cell and Molecular Biology



This is an advanced graduate-level course biology that covers the classic and the contemporaneous concepts on the cell structure/organization, its dynamics and the key molecular mechanisms controlling cell function. The first part of the course consists of an overview of the major cellular structures and components and their function in cell communication, trafficking/transport/secretion, cell division/proliferation/survival/death, cell motility, and gene expression. The second part will be dedicated to the major cell signaling pathways controlling these aspects of the cell and their molecular components. Students will also be exposed to recent developments in the field, based on primary literature.
