METOXIA's PhD course in Hypoxic Tumour Micro-Environment

MAASTRO have prepared the e-learning course from our Maastricht PhD course on their web-site

You can follow the METOXIA eCOURSE via this link. Enjoy. The eCOURSE comprises a set of lectures related to Hypoxia, particularly in these topics:

  • Clinical relevance of tumour Hypoxia
  • Molecular and cellular responses to Hypoxia
  • Therapeutic approaches to targeting Hypoxia
  • Oxygen control
  • Oxygen measurement
  • Hypoxic drug development

Each lecture contains a presentation, video, related information and a self-assessment. There is also a final exam.

The target audience of this course is researchers actively engaged in Hypoxia or a closely related field.
