ProgrammaTHE COURSE (6 CFU) IS DIVIDED INTO TWO MAIN PARTS. THE FIRST ONE (5.5 CFU) IS AIMED AT DESCRIBING THE HISTORICAL AND NORMATIVE FRAMEWORK. THE SECOND ONE IS PLANNED TO FOCUS THE STUDY ON A VARIETY OF BOTH IN VITRO AND IN VIVO EXPERIMENTAL MODELS, WHOSE EMPLOYMENT IS USEFUL IN EITHER BIOLOGY APPLIED TO HUMAN HEALTH OR CELLULAR/MOLECULAR BIOLOGY. STARTING POINTS FOR DISCUSSIONS WILL BE PROVIDED, IN ORDER TO ENGAGE THE LEARNERS FOR THE WRITING OF A REPORT THAT WILL BE GOAL OF EXAMINATION. LABORATORY PRACTICES (0.5 CFU) WILL BE FIXED TOGETHER WITH THE STUDENTS WITH THE AIM OF ACQUIRING NEW TECHNIQUES ON SOME EXPERIMENTAL MODELS WIDELY USED IN BIOLOGICAL RESEARCH
Testi AdottatiTEXTBOOKS AND OTHER EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL FOR HOMEWORKS WILL BE SUGGESTED TO LEARNERS DURING THE COURSE.
Modalità ErogazioneThe modul is compoed by three parts: 1) lectures about the use of the the experimental model in science through the history, laws that rule the use of experimental models, examples of scientific topics and how they have been solved by the use of the experimental models. 2) presentations by the students of scientific papers about specific scierntific topics (group work) and critic discussion about the use of the experimental models. 3)Lab practice on prototypes of experimental aniumals
Modalità ValutazioneThe evaluation is composed by the presentation made by the student during the second part of the course and by a final written relation, on a topic choose by the student, which is also orally presented. In particular, the students send a report which is evaluated by the teacher ad discussed with the student. Once the report is sufficiently organized, the student will do a presentation in power point in front of the exam committee.
