Biological aspects of C&GT / Basic cell biology

University Assigned Professor Module: Ass. Prof. A. Kriebardis


The students will gain understanding about different cell types, as well as basic aspects related to cell biology. The students will also learn about different methods (viral and non-viral vectors) of gene therapy.

Cells and tissue culture basics, cells life cycle

Cells life cycle, cell death, aging and senescence, differentiation

Stem cells

Cell signaling with focus on T cell signaling

Case studies of cell types (MSCs, immune cells, stem cells)

Viruses and viral vectors, non-viral gene therapies,

Case studies of gene therapies (viral vectors, non-viral vectors)
