Course objectives
MU Life Sciences Seminar is an ongoing prestigious seminar series at UKB in the interconnected and complementary fields, collectively called "Life Sciences". The seminar series is focused on currently growing fields, which combine modern methods of biophysics, computational modelling, imaging, biochemistry and molecular biology with "more classical" disciplines such as microbiology, cell biology, physiology, genetics, toxicology, developmental and evolutionary biology and medicine. The purpose of the seminar series is to invite renowned speakers from abroad to establish and develop professional contacts, create a Seminar Series of excellence, which will inspire and motivate both scientists and students at MU, and finally, to promote mutual contacts and interactions between individual labs/departments working at UKB. The seminars are held at the University Campus (A11/132) on Thursday afternoon from 16:00 followed by an open reception in front of the lecture room. The most prestigious speakers are invited to give a lecture within Mendel Lectures, which are held in the Refectory of Augustinian Abbey at Mendel square from 17:00.
Learning outcomes
Students will obtain knowledge about currently growing fields, which combine modern methods of biophysics, computational modelling, imaging, biochemistry and molecular biology with "more classical" disciplines such as microbiology, cell biology, physiology, genetics, toxicology, developmental and evolutionary biology and medicine.
