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 methodsContinuous 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 experimentsTeaching methodsPractical course with independent performance of the experiments.LanguageEnglish> Scientific Method: Drug Discovery SE Molecular Biotechnology moreScientific Method: Drug Discovery SELector: FH-Prof. Dr. Thomas Czerny, Dr.in Elisabeth Riegel1SWS1ECTSLecture contentsIn this course the students learn strategies of scientific research. In a small group they develop a strategy for a given topic (in Drug Discovery), by designing experiments and work packages which they evaluate according to different criteria like costs, effort, efficiency, Finally each group presents its research project.Assessment methodsFinal exam Presentation and discussion of the developed strategyTeaching methodsSeminarLanguageEnglishPublications The publications of Elisabeth Riegel written at FH Campus Wien can be found in our publication database, others in the personal web space.
