Students will acquire critical knowledge and concepts related to several aspects of cell regulation, in particular how cell regulation is involved and can be applied in Health and Life Sciences. Students will learn the main experimental approaches used in research of various areas of Molecular and Cell Biology. At seminars student will learn about the most recent development for each specific area, by using recent and relevant scientific publications as base material.
For each specific subject, student will be able to identify the main concepts and emerging scientific questions.
At practical classes (laboratory) students will acquire knowledge and skills allowing them to design and execute experimental protocols, including several experimental tasks, commonly used in biomedical research and that will be related with the topics of the seminar.

The fundamental concepts associated with syllabus will be taught at theoretical classes, which will take place in parallel with practical classes, in which students will develop and use experimental protocols related to the subjects presented at theoretical classes.
Theoretical classes are organized as series of seminars done by national and international experts (working in Portugal). The programme is developed in collaboration with other Master and PhD programs, including similar advanced courses.
Practical classes will be done at CEDOC;
Laboratories and will be supervised by researchers from those laboratories.
Evaluation is based on a written exam (60% of final mark), 20% will take into account the practical part of the course: planning, design and execution of the proposed experimental protocol and 20% will take into account data presentation and discussion. Written exam will have 20 opened question and 2h of duration.
