Remark: 3-day Block course, every year in January. To register, contact EDMS Administration
Assessment of signaling mechanisms in cancer. The objectives of the course are: - to understand the importance of signaling and cell-cell interactions in cancer stroma interactions - to learn techniques involved in assessing the function of such interactions in vitro and in vivo.
Basics of major signaling pathways, experimental assays to detect pathway activity in vitro and in vivo and approaches to identify signaling mechanisms at various levels.
- Preparation of primary cell cultures and viral transduction.
- Detection of signaling activity in situ and in vitro using reporter constructs and localization of signaling components.
Please note that you are not allowed to inscribe in your own group!
Note that 3 practical courses are mandatory for all EDMS students and that they have the priority; each course has between 2 to 4 possible slots.
Therefore, please do not register by yourself to this course, this will be done by the EDMS program administrator!
