The Molecular Properties of Proteins: Structure, Function and Disease, 15 credits

About the education

Processes that result in misfolded proteins are responsible for several serious neurological deseases. This course dicusses in a conceptual way, why proteins form specific structures, protein interactions within the cellular machinery, why errors sometimes occur as well as protective strategies against errors. In addition to lectures and practicals, the course includes projects, discussions and a miniconference and aims at improving the students ability to formulate and test hypothesises.

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
