Summary

 

Molecules, Cells and Processes 2 - BIOE95033

Aims

To learn about regulators and modulators of gene expression, i.e. genetics and epigenetics, with a specific focus on methylation

Role

Course Leader

Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (UG) - BIOE97158

Role

Course Leader

Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (PG) - BIOE97061

Aims

 

This course will introduce fundamental concepts of normal tissue development, then discuss how researchers have used this information to imitate nature in a lab setting, engineering cells and tissues that may be used to model diseases, treat disease, or develop drugs.

Topics discussed

  • Societal challenges for tissue engineering
  • Cell building blocks
  • Normal tissue development and regeneration
  • Adult stem cells -Induced pluripotent stem cells
  • Challenges in imitating nature
  • Cell and tissue therapy
  • Gene therapy
  • Drug development
