Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Chemistry
Starts 1 : 3 Spring Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Elective
Lecturer : Hideki SHIBATA Associate Professor 

•Course Purpose
This course covers advanced topics in molecular cell biology, including application and methods. Students will learn how research on molecular cell biology is achieved with advanced technology in the particular areas of ion transport, membrane traffic, stem cells, biomedicines, live-cell imaging, epithelial cell biology etc.
The goals of this course are to obtain knowledge about advanced topics in molecular cell biology, including ion transport, membrane traffic, and epithelial cell biology and to understand advanced experimental methods and technologies for studying these molecular and cellular biological issues.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Basic knowledge on molecular biology
Cell Biology I, II, and III

•Course Topics
(I) Ion channels: Electrophysiology, structure and function
(II) Membrane traffic: Bio-imaging and fluorescent probes
(III) Tissues and stem cells
(IV) Epithelial cell structure and communications
(IV) Exam

Review after each lecture, and work on assignments and examinations in accordance with the instructions of the instructor.


•Additional Reading
Essential Cell Biology (5th ed.) Bruce Alberts et al. ; Molecular Biology of the Cell (6th ed.)

•Grade Assessment
Evaluation will be based on in-class participation, assignments, and examinations.
