Biological & Life Sciences

Law courses are intended to be taken by those wishing to further their personal development. Whether you take the courses in a classroom or online, there are a variety of specialized study areas. Some of these include regulatory theory, commercial law and intellectual property.

A master's in biological and life sciences will provide you with in depth knowledge about how life operates on earth. In addition, you will learn advanced research strategies that will allow you to conduct independent life research in the future

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

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....

Cellbiology, Animal and Plant Physiology

The separate courses includes lectures, seminars, and practical laboratory work. The Cellbiology course comprises comprehensive theoretical knowledge of the most central parts of modern Molecular Cell Biology. The course also covers the concept of malignant cell growth and provides examples of molecular mechanisms behind tumor progression. The Animal and Plant Physiology course focus on multicellular animals and vascular plants. Different organism levels, from molecular to physiological, are integrated. Structure and function of animal organ and organ systems are considered in the following context; circulation, respiration, nervous systems, endocrine systems, excretion, nutrition, and developmental biology. Concerning plants there is special emphasis on photosynthesis, cell walls, anatomy, growth and flowering.... [-]
