Practical Training: Cell Culture
Full course description
During this practical session, students acquire skills in cell culturing. To this end, a murine cell line will be used to assess toxicity of materials used as treatments of neuropathic conditions. Moreover, demonstrations about animal models of pain, and behavioural tests to assess pain, are presented to students. Each student analyses data collected during the practical session and produces a short written report.
Students will be able to understand:
- cell culture;
- animal models of pain;
- behavioural tests for pain assessment;
- translational pain modelling.
