The course will consider: - how different experimental systems can be used to model key aspects of a human disease
- how how various types of animal models such as Drosophila, mouse, rat and non-human primates have contributed to our growing understanding of the mechanisms of human physiology and diseases such as diseases of the nervous system, cancer and
- how Applications of these models can be used for addressing mechanistic questions and testing potential therapeutic options.
- how important is for research to ensure the highest standard of animal welfare.
By the end of the course, students will be able to critically evaluate the advantages and the limitations of these experimental models
