The general objective of 1st Cell biology and Cancer course is to cover different topics in cell biology of cancer including cell division, migration and membrane trafficking at different levels: molecular, cellular and in the living organism. In addition, there will 2 dedicated sessions for Physics and Cancer; and tools for cancer cell biology.
Cytoskeleton in 3D systems
The general objective of this 9th cytoskeleton course is to understand the role of the cytoskeleton in 3D systems at different levels: molecular, cellular and in the living organism. The course will provide introductions to the main cytoskeleton networks as well as to the main knowledge in force generation and tissue mechanics. The course will cover general mechanisms of cytoskeleton functions, in the organization and the maintenance of tissue shape and mechanics in different conditions, systems and organs: during development, on monolayers, in gut homeostasis, during the immunological response, in cancer and in the brain.
