Autophagy, a major intracellular neuronal pathways for clearing proteins and damaged organelles, has captured the interest of neuroscientists because it is uniquely able to clear aggregated protein that may not fit into the proteasome, and protein aggregation is a common feature of a variety of neurological diseases. In addition, autophagy has also been implicated in mental illnesses and may have wide applications in the central nervous system. This Advanced Course will provide participants with a firm foundation into the biology of autophagy and the forms of autophagy that are specific to particular cargo, such as mitophagy. The participants will also familiarize themselves with the latest innovations to measure autophagy in biological systems, the links between autophagy and human disease, and strategies to target autophagy therapeutically.
