Autophagy in neurodegeneration, neuroinflammation and immunity: From the molecular mechanisms to the diseases

Knowledge in cell biology is essential for fundamental and biomedical research. The course focuses on understanding the contribution of autophagy, a highly relevant cellular and organismal process, to physiology and the medical consequences of its impairment. In this context, understanding the mechanism and functions of this pathway is key to untangle the pathogenesis of the autophagy- associated diseases.
