課程概述 Course Description

在世界已開發國家中,因經濟高度發展及醫藥發達,社會高齡化趨勢與日俱增。因此,老人醫學是現在世界各國重視與加強發展的學門。重要的是,研究老化與老化相關的生命科學領域也正崛起。這門課程的目標,是期望將老化研究領域中的重要文獻背景做回顧,並探討最近的突破與發現。並希望藉由介紹老化研究領域的研究模式,讓學生能從單一細胞老化、到生物體的衰老的已知機制與模式能有廣泛的認知
This course is designed to cover the topics on aging and aging-related research disciplines, such as regulation of cellular senescence, model systems for aging research, aging genetics, signal transduction in aging process, anti-aging research, mitochondrial biology, DNA repair and chromosome stability in aging, and cancer in aging. After completing this course, students can have a novel aspect of aging and a broad view of aging-related research.

課程學習目標 Course Objectives

  • 讓學生能從單一細胞老化、到生物體的衰老理論有基本概念
  • 老化相關疾病如癌症、神經退化疾病的產生的已知機制有深入概念
  • 建立老化研究的細胞及動物模式的知識及運用老化研究模式的能力
