Aims

Content
The main research question of the project in this module is ‘’To what extent is it possible to  correctly determine the origin of a cancer metastasis using a panel of selected biomarkers and a so-called compound microscope. The findings are validated using a commercial microscope. Students have to propose improvements to their microscope as part of the concluding poster session and lab journal. The plan of approach for the cell biological part of the project will be in the e-tool LabBuddy from this year onwards.
 
The courses Geometrical optics and Cell Biology are the corner stones of the project, both in a theoretical and practical sense.
The course Cell Biology will address several topics such as the central dogma DNA-RNA-protein including the regulation of these processes, the cell cycle and the molecular basis of cancer. In two histological practicals students will learn about the relation between form and function and normal vs. cancerous tissue.  
 
The Geometrical Optics course will cover the following topics:
•       Nature of light (wave or particle)
•       Description of domain of geometrical and physical optics
•       Radiometric units
•       Reflection and refraction (non-curved and curved surfaces)
•       Lens equation
•       Lenses, loupes and eyepieces
•       Endoscopy
•       Microscopy
•       Design and implementation of simple optical experiments.

In module 2 Calculus 1B will address a variety of mathematical topics. Also a case study will be incorporated which links to the cell biology course (tumor growth).
