Course syllabus
Detailed aims of the teaching:
The main experimental models used to test the activity of natural products and active principles obtained by chemical synthesis are illustrated. They span from in vitro models (cell, organ and tissue culture) to ex vivo and in vivo models. For these latter, the choice of the animal model more suitable to test the effect of a given compound is explained and discussed. Animal models of human pathologies (either spontaneous, genetically modified or chemically-induced) are also considered. In addition, basic knowledge of biostatistic are provided in order to allow the statistical evaluation of experimental data as well as the presentation of results.
