Särskild behörighet
Kursens lärandemål After the course the students will be able i) to measure glucose transport in isolated rodent skeletal muscle; ii) to measure lipolysis in isolated adipocytes; iii) to dissect out mouse pancreatic islets and measure the insulin release; iv) to judge and analyze obtained data.
The students will be able to describe the possibilities and limitations of the above techniques.
Kursens innehåll The aim of this course is to provide methodology to solve pre-clinical problems in metabolic and endocrine research. The course is laboratory based, aiming to give all participants hands on experience with isolation of pancreatic islets, skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Theoretical and practical considerations will be presented and discussed.
Arbetsformer The course meets for five days full time, including three full day laboratory practical sessions. The first day will consist of several lectures to give a background to the metabolic questions which will be addressed in the practical part of the course. Our aim is to provide the student with a hands on experience of each technique covered. In order to achieve this, for the laboratory work the course participants will be subdivided into smaller groups.
Obligatoriska moment All three laboratory tasks are compulsory; as an exception, a written task could be given to a participant to compensate absence.
Examination The laboratory notebook examination from each student, a short oral presentation of the project work and a short summary of the project work by each group.
Kurslitteratur och övriga läromedel All literatures will be sent as PDF files, and they are published reviews or manuscripts which cover all theoretical and experimental aspects.
Antal studenter 9 - 16
Urval av studenter Selection will be based on 1) the relevance of the course syllabus for the applicant's doctoral project (according to written motivation), 2) date for registration as a doctoral student (priority given to earlier registration date)
