Mechanism of tissue and tumor fibrosis (MOTIF)

Main content

Experts will act as an inspiration source and assure the knowledge and technique transfer. The visits will be organized so that visits can be coordinated with teaching in Master and PhD courses at Department of Biomedicine, and a research seminar in existing seminar series.

Individual lectures will be included in the MSc. courses BMED320, BMED330 and the PhD course BMED904.

Tentative lectures:

Chris McCulloch lab: Animal models to study heart fibrosis

Ming Tsao lab: Role gene profiling to analyze signaling pathways in cancer

Weaver lab: Role of integrins in regulating tumor stiffness.
