Infection, Neurobiology, and Genetics

The separate courses includes lectures, seminars, and practical laboratory work. Immunology covers the organization and development of the immune system, its activation upon stimulation, the various effector mechanisms involved in the innate and adaptive immune responses (cellular and humoral immunity), immunological memory, tolerance mechanisms, transplantation immunology, autoimmunity, hypersensitivity, immune deficiencies, and the defense mechanisms against different pathogens. The Bacterial Physiology and Pathogenesis course will highlight the intriguing world of bacteria. It will give insight into bacterial diversity and some of their distinctive habitats. It will illustrate in molecular detail the regulatory mechanisms of microbial adaptation to these varied environments. It will discuss the role of horizontal gene transfer in bacterial evolution and the acquisition of new coding potential, such as antibiotic resistance. The course will present the current state of knowledge regarding pathogenic mechanisms and the major disease causing bacteria that use them. This will include an explanation at the molecular level of various pathogenic strategies such as motility, biofilms, quorum sensing, secretion systems, toxins, adhesion factors and immune evasion mechanisms. In the face of widespread antibiotic resistance among leading bacterial pathogens, new anti-bacterial treatment and prevention options will also be addressed. The Neurobiology course gives the student extended knowledge about how the nervous system is organized, and how it functions in order to change physiological state of neuronal circuits which underlies the generation of behavior. Thus, the nervous system is explored at molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral levels. The Genetics course aims to provide knowledge of genetic theory, methodology and analysis. Subject matter includes genetic principles and the underlying mechanisms at molecular level as well as at the cellular, organism and population levels. The course will provide students with an overall understanding of genome organization and how genetic changes at the molecular level are able to influence biological processes and how these changes affect organisms, populations and ultimately evolution....

Food and Society

UOC Universitat Oberta de Catalunya
Campus Full time October 2017 Spain Barcelona

The Specialisation in Food and Society proposes an interdisciplinary exploration of the role that food plays in society and the role society and culture play in shaping food choices. [+]

The Specialisation in Food and Society proposes an interdisciplinary exploration of the role that food plays in society and the role society and culture play in shaping food choices. The way we produce and eat food has shifted rapidly over the last century, spurred on by new technologies, industrialisation, urbanization and globalisation. But some things remain the same: food is one of the first essentials of life, the world's largest industry, a frequently indulged pleasure and is often at the core of our social relationships. This course is comprised of four modules: The Food of History; Anthropology of Food Globalisation; Food and Communication; and, Food, Heritage and Tourism. Focus in this specialisation is on the role that food plays in our communities and societies, how we are influenced and impacted by food and in turn, how food is impacted by us. This Specialisation is taught by an interdisciplinary and international team of experts. With this training, students will understand the history of food, up to the way that food is currently interpreted, eaten (diets and nutrition) and marketed. This Specialisation in Food and Society can be taken as a stand-alone certificate. It also makes up a mandatory part of the Master's in Food, Culture and Territory and the Postgraduate Diploma in Food, Culture and Locality. The Specialisation in Food and Society is also an elective in the Master's in Food, Society and International Food Governance. Objectives To look at food and food systems from a historical point of view. To identify and analyze events and phenomena that can be used as case studies to add further depth to the examination of present-day issues that might constitute the student's specific interests. To acquire a set of analytical tools in terms of concepts and methodologies that students will be able to apply to their specific field of research or professional activity, which include: How to frame historical questions related to food and food systems; How to take into account the multiple ways of approaching food history; How to define what makes research on food history rigorous; How to develop a language for communicating research so that it has a larger impact. To acquire analytical tools to achieve a better understanding of how food operates as a system of communication and, at the same time, how food-related communication and media represent food. To not only examine food-focused media such as cookbooks, magazines, cooking shows, films, and the internet, but also the communication practices connected with marketing (advertising, packaging, and design), health (dieting, nutrition, food safety) and socio-political issues (sustainability, biodiversity, food security, food sovereignty). To examine how food is employed in various media for all kinds of different goals, even when their main focus is not food (cultural and identity wars, environment, climate change, social inequality etc.). Competencies This programme will prepare you to meet the demand for knowledgeable and well-trained food systems analysts and leaders, by fostering practical and critical learning with an international perspective. The courses are geared towards: Individuals working in NGOs and community organizations that address issues related to food, and agriculture. Individuals working in the agri-food sector. Public administrators. Policy analysts. Consultants. Lawyers. Journalists specializing in food politics. Professional organisations or international cooperation projects that address issues linked to food and agriculture. Students wishing further education on issues of agri-food governance. Providing students with the necessary tools for improving their employability, giving them the right to knowledge and education to be successful in the different occupations they will have during their lives, is a fundamental purpose of our postgraduate programmes. Student profile Food and Society students typically have backgrounds in a field related to the agri-food sector, or an academic background in anthropology, economics, environmental studies, development, public health, agriculture or sociology. The programme attracts people who wish to specialise in the agri-food sector, as well as those interested working in this field. Many already have work experience in the agri-food sector and are looking to broaden their knowledge and skills so as to advance their careers. Learning resources Materials will be in English and will include written course materials, relevant websites, academic articles, books and magazine articles, among others. Academic requirements Students can still apply for the programme even if they do not have a university degree. The Specialisation in Food and Society is open to everyone with a good grasp of English. The UOC is an open university which means that even if you do not have a high school diploma or university degree you can still take our courses. Prior knowledge The course materials and teaching language is English. A strong grasp of English is required for this programme. Degrees Once the overall assessment process has been completed successfully, the UOC will issue a Master Diploma/ Postgraduate Diploma/Specialization Certificate to those participants with an accredited university qualification that is valid in Spain. Should you not have such a qualification, a Certificate will be issued. [-]
