Objective of the program

The program's objective is to introduce students into the field of metallomics – a rapidly developing area of biology, which focuses on homeodynamics of microelements (Cu, Fe, Zn, Mn et al). These elements are essential micronutrients, being toxic agents at the same time. According to modern concepts either genetic and ecological deficiency or excess of trace elements cause manifestation of hereditary and multifactor cardiovascular, oncology and neurodegenerative diseases.

The students will acquire knowledge in inorganic biochemistry and analytical chemistry of the trace elements, computer algorithms for the search and analysis of metal-binding proteins, molecular evolution and molecular modeling. The studying of structure and function of the major classes of metalloproteinase, as well as metabolic pathways of metals in the cell and in the organism are included into the Program. The role of trace elements in apoptosis, signaling and disease development are considered. During the Program the students will listen to lectures, delivered by the specialists in the respective fields, attend seminars, and gain practical skills in computer methods in biology, molecular modeling, molecular cloning, chromatography, atomic absorption spectroscopy, molecular spectroscopy, and studies of chelation properties of biomolecules....
