120.606.01 MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF CELLULAR STRESS AND QUALITY CONTROL
Examines stress sensing and response pathways at the DNA, RNA, and protein levels, covering transcriptional regulation, RNA processing, and protein quality control. Also discusses Organelle-specific stress responses at the level of the endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria are also discussed. Disseminates course material through formal lectures and discussions of literature. Local JHU scientists highlight each topic by presenting ongoing laboratory research, a “meet the expert” opportunity.
This course will prepare you to be able to do the following:
Describe the basics for how cells sense and respond to a wide variety of cellular stress agents and maintain fitness and survival through quality control.
Understand the basis for state-of-the-art laboratory approaches to research the molecular and cellular biology of stress and quality control.
Gain an appreciation of cutting edge research conducted at JHU on cellular stress and quality control.
