Course Description

Pharmacology and biotechnology are among the fastest moving areas of biomedical sciences. Biotechnology has already provided us with the clot-busting drug, tissue plasminogen activator for the treatment of thrombosis and myocardial infarction. It also holds the promise of new treatments for arthritis and cancer using humanised antibodies. Many diseases still remain to be conquered or are difficult to treat effectively, in particular Alzheimer?s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic inflammatory diseases and malignant disease. Developments in pharmacology, such as applying biotechnology, promise new and more effective treatments for these diseases. Specialised professionals and researchers are needed to help bring this about. This course provides advanced training in applying biotechnology to innovate pharmacological approaches for treating human disease. This course is suitable if you ? wish to upgrade your knowledge and skills to increase your competitiveness in the job market ? want to pursue research in pharmacology or biotechnology at PhD level ? are already employed and seeking to further your career prospects This course gives you ? an understanding of the cellular and molecular pathology of various human diseases ? an understanding of recombinant DNA technology, molecular pharmacology and biotechnology to an advanced level and how they apply to human diseases ? the basis of therapeutic rationales for treating diseases and an understanding of their development ? knowledge of developing and applying biotechnology to pharmacology ? the transferable skills you need to continue developing your knowledge.
