Lecture contents

The toxicological and therapeutic potential of a small molecule drug will be estimated with a variety of cell based test systems. On the one hand the activating potential of the small molecule on a specific pathway (heat shock response pathway) is analysed and on the other hand possible cytotoxic effects are estimated in a concentration-dependent manner. A broad variety of assays is provided for the students including luciferase reporter assays, Western blot, qPCR, flow cytometry, ELISA and general viability assays. The students themselves select suitable methods.

Assessment methods

Continuous assessment
Assessment of the work in the laboratory, written exams at the beginning of the laboratory course, discussion of the results after the laboratory course and a written report of the experiments

Teaching methods

Practical course with independent performance of the experiments.
