Purpose of the course To increase the understanding of the cellular mechanisms following lesions to the central nervous system and potential therapies.
Intended learning outcomes Upon completion of the course, the doctoral students can describe molecular and cellular mechanisms of injury response and the limitations of endogenous repair. The participants can relate injury responses to their potential use for therapy. The participants can discuss and critically evaluate different repair strategies for central nervous system lesions.
Contents of the course Molecular and cellular mechanisms of injury response, following lesions to the central nervous system. Scientific approaches taken in the study of injury responses. Potential approaches for therapy.
Teaching and learning activities Interactive lectures of international experts in the field of central nervous system repair, small group discussions, pre-course project work in teams, poster presentations and discussions.
Compulsory elements Participation in the pre-course project work, group discussions and presentations is mandatory. Compensation is according to the instructions of the course director.
Examination Students are examined on the outcomes of the course based on the pre-course project work in teams, individual poster presentations and active participation in discussions. Each group of students will receive a specific central nervous system lesion topic (medical problem) and relevant literature before the start of the course. Using this specific lesion as example, the students will use literature to evaluate the known endogenous repair mechanisms and their limitations. The students will present the specific medical problems, approaches how to study central nervous system repair as well as potential approaches for therapy. This presentation will be in form of a scientific poster of which each student will present a specific part. All poster presentations will be held as scientific discussion with the entire group.
Literature and other teaching material Recent articles in the field.
Number of students 12 - 25
Selection of students 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)
More information This course is organized at the Biomedicum, Karolinska Institutet Solna campus, room B0313. One day of the course, Wednesday April 3 is organized as an international research symposium at the Nobel Forum. The course is supported by the Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine.
