The purpose of the course is to provide knowledge about the main stages of the idea implementation, planning and execution of the experimental part of a scientific project (preparation phase, selection and setting of methods, design and planning of individual experiments, expansion of project to study the molecular mechanisms underlying the obtained biological effects). The practical part will include the preparation of a project according to one's own idea, but with invented results that confirm the idea. The basic skills and abilities necessary for successful research include the use of laboratory equipment, experimental design, preparation of the solutions, selection of the conditions for determination of enzyme activities, filling the lab notebook as well as preparation of scientific reports and a manuscript. All these issues will be addressed during the course. Practical classes will include video demonstrations of the laboratory work and experiments.

The course is designed for  bachelor's students, who are willing to prepare for research work

The expected number of participants is 30.

Scholarship: 14 scholarships of 200 euros. For students strongly affected by the war. Funding conditions include successful completion of the course.

The aim of the course is to acquaint the students with the basic and innovative forms of face-to-face and distance learning, as well as forms of popularization and dissemination of knowledge among the general public. Specifically, we aim to provide in-depth knowledge of principles, methods, and organizational approaches in teaching biological sciences; to form practical abilities, skills, general and special professional student-teaching competences as well as to convey approaches for the dissemination of the biological knowledge to the general public.

Course start: 10.10.2023

The aim of the course is to provide an in-depth knowledge of the basic methods of classical statistics and their application to biomedical data analysis. Statistical learning is a crucial tool for anyone who wants to make sense of their data and extract useful patterns from an array of information. This field of science combines both classical statistics and modern machine learning methods to create models that describe complex relationships between data, as well as to draw the necessary conclusions about the nature of this interaction. 

The course is designed for master’s and undergraduate students of biological specialties (regardless institution of higher education).

This course overviews modern measurements and imaging techniques used in biophysics, molecular and cell biology. Its main goal is to teach students about the capabilities and limitations of each of the most popular techniques, and explain how to select the simplest and the most effective approach to answer a particular experimental question. Practical works will include a complete workflow of processing real experimental datasets from fluorescence and CD experiments, planning chromatography experiments, advanced work with fluorescence microscopy images using ImageJ and Pyton

The course is designed for undergraduate, master’s, and postgraduate students of biological specialties, who want to master modern measurement and visualization methods used in biophysics, molecular and cellular biology.

The maximum number of participants is 60.

Scholarship: 27 scholarships of 400 euros. For students from families affected by the war. Funding conditions require successful completion of the course.
