Description

Biomedical Exploitation of Membrane Trafficking

This elective will focus upon the biomedical importance of intracellular compartmentalisation, specifically the membrane trafficking events that may be described collectively as endocytosis. The one day session will cover:

1) An introduction to endocytosis and intracellular anatomy
2) Molecular regulation of compartmental identity
3) Parasitic diseases in relation to endocytosis i.e. Leishmania and Malaria
4) Exploiting membrane trafficking for gene therapy and drug delivery
5) The wider biomedical application membrane trafficking.

These topics will be delivered by a panel of academics with relevant research interests/publications.

The elective is specifically for DTA Bioscience students from all years who have an interest in membrane biology and endocytosis. 6 places are available.

Booking deadline: 30 June 2017
