The course gives a general overview of the immune system and its evolution. The main focus will be the technologies arising from immunology and their applications. New innovations in applied immunology and advanced training in designing, implementing and evaluating Immunological techniques will be covered. The course is organised between theory and theoretical practicum.
1 Knowledge and understanding of basic immunology drawing on previous knowledge in immunology and also cell biology and biochemistry.
2 Biotechnological applications derived from immunology and their technological and biomedical applications.
3 Build a knowledge base in applied immunology by searching literature and e-resources and apply it to critically resolve problems.
4 Examine the strategies and approaches used to generate “product pipeline” going from basic immunology to a biotechnological product.
5 Identify problems in applied immunology and define strategies for their resolution.
