  JOINT INTERNATIONAL MASTER COURSE
  IN MEDICAL BIOTECHNOLOGY
MODULE INFORMATION MB05 - Cell interactions and Pathogenesis
CURRICULUM UNIT: Cell interactions and pathogenesis


SCIENTIFIC AREA: Cell Biology and Pathology
YEAR 10
Hours of direct teaching: 45
Hours  of self-learning: 55



CODE: MB05
CREDITS: 04
OBJECTIVE:

 
Acquire knowledge on the mechanisms of inter- and intra-cellular interactions within organisms and biological associations.


EXPECTED RESULTS (specific skills):
After completing this module, the student should be able of:
1.Describing the molecular basis of interactions between cells, in particular between hosts and pathogens / symbionts from the process of recognition of the pathogen / symbiotic during  the infection process  to  the host response.
2.Identify the molecular tools that  researchers can employ for to study the interactions mentioned above.

METHODOLOGY OF TEACHING / LEARNING:
Teaching of the course will be based on lectures, practical laboratory sessions and seminars

STUDENTS EVALUATION :
The final assessment of this module will be based on the weighted average of the final exam, of the seminar presentations and  of the practical activities. The evaluation criteria of the module shall comply with the assessment regulations of HCPM.

TEACHING TOPICS:  
1.Introduction to communication between cells
2.Mechanisms of infections (molecular bases)
3.Response to infection (innate and acquired)
4.Mechanisms of pathogenicity
5.Mechanisms of symbiosis
6.Molecular dissection of host-pathogen interactions
7.Vectors of pathogenic microrganisms
