Programmed cell death processes versus necrosis

Apoptosis in mammalian cells

Programmed necrosis

Classification of cell death processes

Yeast apoptosis

Yeast as a model system to study apoptosis induced by anticancer drugs

The central role of mitochondria in the intrinsic apoptotic pathway: mitochondrial membrane permeabilization mechanisms

Utilization of yeast to study the molecular aspects of the function of Bcl-2 family members

Mitochondrial degradation during acetate–induced apoptosis in colorectal carcinoma cells

Sphingolipid signaling and oxidative stress in yeast cell death and ageing

 The role of the sphingomyelinase Isc1p in iron signaling and cell death

It also includes a hands-on intensive module of lab work. In addition to brief descriptive lectures, the theoretical modules will entail discussions of scientific papers. The hands-on lab module will illustrate different aspects of the theoretical session topics, and will include different techniques to monitor morphological, biochemical and molecular changes associated to cell death processes and autophagy namely, epifluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry. They will be followed by results interpretation, group discussion and final wrap up.
