Molecular and Cellular Biology

This course introduces the basic knowledge required for biomedical research at the molecular and cellular level.Students learn about how the biological phenomena of a cell are sustained and regulated by the functions of genes,the regulation of their expression, protein synthesis and degradation, the structure and function of the cell,and the molecular functions of organelles. Students also learn about the pathophysiology of various diseases arising from abnormalities at the molecular and cellular level.

Analysis and utilization of biomedical data

This course aims to enhance the research performance of students by teaching them how to analyze and use biomedical data. Students learn about the principles and methods essential for conducting biomedical experiments and writing manuscripts including basic statistics, literature reviews, research ethics, bioethics, and academic writing. Students also learn about presentation techniques and use of intellectual property rights.

English View

This course provides the foundation for analysis and management of experimental data from the fields of biomedical sciences to promote research competency and personal development. This is made up of two parts, statistics and essential skills. Lectures in the statistics part are for use of statistical techniques to enable valid analysis and interpretations of experimental results. The part of essential skills includes how to carry out a literature search from PubMed, citation and referencing using EndNote software, scientific writing, efficient presentation, and intellectual property rights management.
