Modern instrumental techniques for analyzing biological structures and processes at the nanometer level; combining nano- and conventional techniques to answer scientific questions. Students formulate, design, and implement a research project.
Learning outcomes Gain practical knowledge of current nanotechnologies and test their applicability for biological experiments and topics such as the receptor-ligand interactions, protein folding and refolding, and protein trafficking and toxicity in cells and tissues. Distinguish between whole-cell and reconstituted experimental approaches and learn in which situation they should be used. Examine cell signaling pathways and protein-lipid complexes using traditional light microscopy and high-resolution atomic force / confocal microscopy. Understand how bulk- and microscopy-based spectroscopy methods can be utilized for cellular investigations. Explore alternative strategies and tools for cellular and sub-cellular investigations.
