GENERAL INFORMATION      
The course will include the theoretical modules referred above and a hands-on intensive module of lab work. In addition to brief descriptive lectures, the theoretical modules will entail case study and topic or problem–driven group discussions. The hands-on lab module will illustrate different aspects of the theoretical sessions topics, and will include different techniques to monitor morphological, biochemical and molecular changes associates to cell death processes namely, epifluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry. They will be followed by results interpretation, group discussion and final wrap up.
