Advanced Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology, 15 credits

About the education

The course gives in depth knowledge of the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in neuronal survival. Differentiation of nerve cells, growth factors and their receptor mechanisms as well as gene regulation in the nervous system are discussed. Lectures on neuroimmunology and the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration and apoptosis, and interactions between nerve cells and glia cells are included. The course comprises lectures in parallel with laboratory exercises, 4 weeks of project work in a research laboratory and is concluded with a final seminar.

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.
