Obiettivi formativi
Aim of the course is to provide students with instruments to understand the molecular bases of animal cancer, metabolic and parasitic diseases, and how they may be used as model for human counterparts
Students will learn how to link molecular modifications with diagnostics.
Risultati apprendimento attesi
The students are also expected to gain knowledge and acquire experience on the contribution of the conventional and unconventional animal models for a better understanding and control of parasitic diseases mechanisms and effects
