This module will consider the general properties of receptors, signal transduction pathway, and the regulation of their activity. Emphasis will be given to G-protein coupled receptors, receptor tyrosine kinases and nuclear receptors. Introductory lectures will be followed by interactive sessions in specialised areas of the subject given by experts in their field. In addition to formal lectures, the course will provide tutorials and seminars with opportunities to critically-evaluate research papers and reinforce the lectures.
