The course encompasses how proteins are transported into and across the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and mitochondrial membranes and how they are folded and assembled in these organelles. The course also involves defining the machinery and mechanisms responsible for the sorting and transport of proteins between the different compartments of the endomembrane system and in maintaining organelle identity. Our goal is to understand the underlying mechanisms for each process and how they are regulated. This knowledge will provide us with an intellectual framework within which specific diseases can be studied.
A 1st or upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or the overseas equivalent, in a relevant subject. In certain circumstances, a lower 2nd Class Honours degree supplemented by a Master's degree, or appropriate relevant work experience, may be acceptable.
