19th Euroconference on Apoptosis “Metabolism, Epigenetics and Cell Death”
8th Training course on 'Concepts and Methods in Programmed Cell Death'
September 14-17, 2011
Stockholm, Sweden

General information

Book of abstracts

Training course
The Training course will take place on Wednesday September 14, from 14:00 till 18:30

The aim of the training course is to introduce young scientists into the current concepts, methodologies and tools used in the study of programmed cell death.
Lecturers in this training course will present a 35 minute seminar, followed by a 10 minute discussion. The sessions are intended to provide a general review of the literature, recent techniques and methodologies in cell death research, in combination with the opportunity to discuss afterwards.
