Overview

After completion of this study programme students will be able:

- To understand principles of immune, nervous and other systems, their structures, integration with other vital systems of biological objects;
- To work with living cells, organisms, populations.
- To evaluate processes taking place inside of the cell, work with cell cultures under laboratory conditions, to apply obtained results for modeling of biological systems, to evaluate intercellular interconnections, relations between single individuals and populations;
- To apply modern investigation methods, to work according principles of good laboratory practice, rules of bioethics, to collect, process, preserve and prepare research material under laboratory and field conditions;
