Project - Research Seminars

MO13 - ECTS This UC is designed to prepare a research project and make its presentation. It is expected that students will be able to search the bibliography on a subject, study it and organize it in the form of an integrated update and on this they can ask questions and identify problems. They will also have to design a strategy to address these issues or problems and find solutions. All these data will be written in a synthesis document that will be supported by a presentation and an evaluation by the UC teachers.

Molecular Signalling

MO16 - ECTS

This course unit aims to familiarise students with the molecular mechanisms used by cells to receive, process, amplify and integrate different signals. It will be discussed the general mechanisms, through which information is transmitted by proteins and signal transduction cascades, and the link between changes in cell signaling and cancer.

Xenobiotics and Cancer

MO17 - ECTS

The student should be able to understand the relevance of xenobiotics in the etiology of cancer to humans and animals, knowing how to identify which classes / types of xenobiotics are most associated with cancer. It should be able to identify the most common modes of exposure (occupational, environmental, accidental, iatrogenic) and the fate of xenobiotics in organisms (terrestrial and aquatic), systematizing the general mechanisms of activation and detoxification of chemical carcinogens. They should understand strategies, namely experimental (in vitro and in vivo), for the evaluation of xenobiotics as mutagenic and / or carcinogenic agents. They should know the pros and cons of the most commonly used model species in experimental chemical carcinogenesis. The student should be able to, by itself and in group dynamics, present and discuss critically the focused topics, making descriptive and schematic syntheses.
