The Course aims at imparting basic notions about how a cell is structured and how it works inside and outside, considering it both as a single entity and in its social/tissue context. Students are therefore expected to gain a deep knowledge and thorough understanding of the primary cellular phenomena and how they may be regulated. By also familiarizing with the technologies that may be used for studying these phenomena and various aspects of cellular behaviour, the student is also assured to acquire full comprehension about how the acquired knowledge can be exploited in applied terms. Through the Course students are further instructed in the ability to collect, compile and evaluate scientific information and data in the field such to be able to make proper judgements about their validity. This will be instrumental in their development of better communications and learning skills.
