Course objectives
The aim of this subject is to introduce students of Biology and Biomedicine to the most recent advances in the field of intracellular communication. The series of talks will be given by top Czech and mainly foreign specialists. The lectures are combined in a way, which will provide as broad as possible overview of methods and models used to study intracellular signaling. The subject is primarily aimed for PhD students but is also available for others. The subject will be taught in English.
