Center for Sund Aldring har forskellige uddannelsesaktiviteter på både pre- og post-graduate niveau. Desuden underviser flere af CESA's gruppeledere i en række kurser udbudt på Københavns Universitet. 

 

Aim and content

This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD Students from NorDoc member universities. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at a Danish university, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. This also applies to PhD students from NorDoc member universities. After the enrollment deadline, available seats will be allocated to applicants on the waiting list.


Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:
1. Obtain theoretical knowledge on mitochondrial bioenergetics
2. Measure mitochondrial respiratory capacity, membrane potential and ROS production in muscle tissues as well as analysis of data obtained
3. Plan and design mitochondrial respiratory protocols


Content
The content of the course will be an introduction to basal mitochondrial respiratory measurements and also to more advanced measurement of ROS production. Besides from this, different topics will be covered during lectures, ranging from the effect of aging on mitochondrial function to the impact of exercise on mitochondrial function. During the lectures focus will be on liver, adipose tissue as well as on skeletal muscle. The students will get an opportunity to present some of their own work, either on a poster or as an oral presentation.

What the course is about: Population aging is a major demographic trend across world regions and brings with it complex opportunities as well as challenges for individuals, the healthcare systems, societal resources, infrastructure, and resource allocations.

To reap the benefits of a larger population of elderly and to minimize the challenges of same, there is a huge focus on defining and implementing more sustainable approaches to aging. However, sustainable aging is not a well defined strategy, and perceived best approach varies significantly from different scientific disciplines.

In this interdisciplinary online course, leading age-researchers representing biology, medicine, social sciences and humanities will give you their perspectives on sustainable aging, inspire you to do your own assessment through facilitated discussion between presenter(s) and students.

Who is this course for: This course is intended for master students and PhD students in their first years of their PhD who are interested in aging and interdisciplinarity. All scientific backgrounds are welcome

The course spans 5 days and will have a strong focus on facilitated discussions between presenter(s) and students.

How to participate in the course: This is an online course. Presentations are offered via live-streaming with input from participating students but are also recorded an offered as streams.

Students are given assignments after each lecture. Students will be divided into work groups depending on time zones. Review of assignments will be done via live streaming in a time slot most optimal for all international students and will be available for streaming afterwards.

Criteria for completion: Completion of course will be based on participation in group work. Course is graded with a pass / non- pass grade. Upon completion an official course certificate will be issued. Participation is awarded with 5 ECTS (Suggested).

Network for Young Scientists (NYS) i Center for Sund Aldring er et netværk for ph.d.-studerende og postdocs, som er tilknyttet centret. Visionen er at skabe en interdisciplinær platform på tværs af centrets forskningsspor og dermed skabe en stærkere relation mellem de unge forskere i centret til gavn for karriereudvikling og netværksdannelse.

 

 

Er du interesseret i at lave din bacheloropgave, speciale eller forskningsårsopgave om aldringsrelaterede spørgsmål? I så fald kan forskere fra Center for Sund Aldring være dine vejledere.

Center for Sund Aldring er et tværfagligt forskningscenter tæt tilknyttet Det Sundhedsvidenskabelige Fakultet. Centret fokuserer på forskning i aldring for bedre sundhed og reducerede skavanker gennem hele livet. Forskningen giver ny viden om, hvordan flere mennesker kan leve sunde liv og nyde en robust alderdom. De tværfaglige forskningsspor undersøger biomedicinske, sociale og psykologiske årsager til sund aldring, og denne viden vil danne grundlag for nye initiativer til forebyggelse og behandling.

Centrale forskningsspørgsmål i Center for Sund Aldring

  • Hvordan kan vi sikre, at vi lever og ældres godt i vores levetid?
  • Hvordan skal vi forklare aldringens biologi?
  • Hvordan minimerer vi aldersrelateret sygdom?
  • Hvordan opmuntrer vi folk til at tage sig af deres helbred og nyde flere sunde, aktive år af deres liv?

Centret omfatter tre forskningsspor og en række tværfaglige aktiviteter. De tre spor søger alle ny viden om, hvordan flere mennesker kan have et sundt liv og en sund aldring.

Center for Sund Aldring afholder regelmæssigt ph.d.-kurser, hvor forskere fra Center for Sund Aldring er arrangører eller medarrangører. Vi har foreløbig ingen aktuelle ph.d.-kurser, men vi arbejder på et nyt udbud, som da vil fremgå herunder og i the Graduate School's ph.d.-kursuskatalog.
