We are happy to invite you to CCBIO’s course CCBIO905 Methods in Cancer Biomarker Research, October 27-29, 2020. This will be run online through Zoom, so you can join from the comfort of your home, or your home universities. Although the course is mainly intended for PhD students and Master students, admission is open for others who find this course interesting.
CCBIO905 is a 5 ECTS course with focus on the full panel of advanced and standard methods with relevance for cancer biomarkers. The intention is a methodological course that also includes components of ethics and economy.
The thematic parts include methods ranging from basic techniques on nucleotides and proteins to more advanced approaches, as well as bioinformatics and bio-banking. The course will focus on methods to study tissue samples, blood samples, urine samples, and other biologic materials, like immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, PCR-techniques and sequencing, Western blot and ELISA, microarray methods, proteomics, circulating tumor cells and DNA, flow cytometry, bioinformatics and biobanks. Changes in nucleic acids and proteins in different settings will also be covered.
