SK3513 Seminar Course in Cell Physics 2.0 credits

Seminarkurs på cellens fysik

The course 1s a postgraduate course which implies an actlve and regular participation ln
seminars organized by the Division of Cell Physics and an oral presentation on the topics of such seminars. The aim of the course Is to provide students with an overview of ongoing cutting-
edge research, new applications and recent developments In a broad spectrum of research
areas, covering among others: cell physics1 cell screening and migration, quantum dot
development and nanophotonics, and super-resolution light microscope.

At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.

Intended learning outcomes

To broaden and deepen the student's knowledge in the different areas of ongoing research of the Division of Cell Physics at the Department of Applied Physics. Upon completion of the course, the student should be able to describe cutting-edge research and technology in a few areas different from his/her own shown during the seminars and identify their connections with other fields of research and technical development carried out by collaborators, competitors and industry.

Course main content

The course encompasses seminars organized by the four groups of the division (cellular biophysics, cell screening and migration, quantum dot development and nanobiophotonics, super-resolution light microscope and nanoscope). The speakers present state-of-the-art and cutting-edge research in their respective areas as well as continguous ones.


The PhD student takes part to the seminars organized by the Division of Cell Physics (every Friday, 8:30-10:00) and provides a record of his/her presence by signing on the list of participants, which is circulated during the seminars.
The examination ls held ad-hoc in the form of a seminar lecture in which the doctoral student reports on one of the seminars that she/he has followed in one year, The selected topic should be outside his/her own area of research, but the PhD student is also encouraged to consider and analyze applications, differences and possible relationships with his/her own and other research fields.


PhD students registered at the Department of Applied Physics, School of Engineering Sciences (SCI) at KTH.


Provided during the seminar, plus ev. additional self-study material.


The attendance lists are filed in by the Cell Physics administrator. The doctoral student requests from the Cell Physics administrator a certificate of attendances, and an examination-seminar Is arranged ad-hoc with the examiner and other students.

Requirements for final grade

• Attendance rate to the departmental seminars above 70% (per year)
• One oral presentation on specific seminar topics, approved by the examiner, providing a total of 2,0 credits - over one year.

Offered by
