課程概述 Course Description

旨在傳授有關細胞凋亡的分子機轉。期望學生對細胞凋亡能有更深入的瞭解,同時並探討在細胞凋亡研究領域的最新發現
This course covers the topics of molecular mechanisms that regulate apoptosis, also known as the programmed cell death. Topics include an overview of apoptosis; the role of mitochondria in apoptosis; the Bcl-2 protein family; the caspases; the death receptors; and apoptosis in diseases. The primary goal of this course is to let students gain insights and learn recent findings in the apoptosis field.
