Biomedical Exploitation of Membrane Trafficking
This elective will focus upon the biomedical importance of intracellular compartmentalisation, specifically the membrane trafficking events that may be described collectively as endocytosis.  The one day session will cover:
1) An introduction to endocytosis and intracellular anatomy 2) Molecular regulation of compartmental identity 3) Parasitic diseases in relation to endocytosis i.e. Leishmania and Malaria 4) Exploiting membrane trafficking for gene therapy and drug delivery 5) Membrane trafficking through the microscope: The use of confocal microscopy to dissect membrane trafficking.
Target audience:  PhD students interested in endocytosis. The elective is open to all DTA students with an interest in membrane biology and endocytosis.
Booking deadline: Friday 31st May 2019
