Pasteur course: Molecular biology of the cell

This four-week intensive laboratory and lecture course is organized in collaboration with the Institut Curie; it is devoted to the presentation of current concepts and new experimental techniques in the study of cellular functions.

 

Topics of lectures include functional organization of the cell, polarity and intracellular traffic communication, cellular signaling, cell migration and invasion, stem cells, apoptosis, autophagy, cell-pathogen interactions, cell cycle and mitosis.

 

The practical course provides training in culture of transfected and infected cells, in vitro reconstitution of cellular functions, gene inactivation and cutting edge techniques of live imaging.

 

The program of the course organized the previous year can be downloaded to get detailed information on the general flavor of the course; topics and practical works may change each year, without altering the general aims and means of the course.
