Molecular Cell Biology II

Faculty of Medicine
3 credit points, final examination, Gábor Bánhegyi; AOKOVM464_2A

2017/2018 Fall semester

Teaching secretary: Gergely Keszler


The Molecular Cell Biology II course encompasses several medically important aspects of cell biology such as signal transduction, cell cycle and apoptosis, which are essential to understand the molecular background of a range of common diseases, such as cancer and neurodegeneration. The subcellular biochemistry module highlights the physiological and pathological role of intracellular organelles. Finally, an insight is provided into cutting-edge methods currently used in cell biology research.

It is obligatory to participate in the lectures, while no practical lessons or demonstrations are held throughout the semester. Consultations will be held by lecturers, when students can ask their questions with regard to the material of corresponding lectures. The oral final examination is based on the whole material of both semesters of Molecular Cell Biology.
