Course Description & Objectives: 

Immunobiotechnology is one of the fastest emerging fields because of its importance in areas like biomedical engineering, pharmaceutical, industry and biochemistry with a direct impact on man.  The course is based on the background of molecular immunology and how it is applied in disease control, in other words it explores the knowledge on immunobiology in relation to biotechnology. Genetic engineering techniques allow large scale production of substances generated during the immune response and these may have therapeutic value by modifying the biological response to cancer and other diseases.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Objectives

  • To provide a theoretical basis to help students understand immunology in relation to biotechnology
  • To illustrate how the techniques are applied in modern proteomics and immunology studies
  • To help students design their own experiments that relate to immunobiotechnology
  • To provide practical instruction in laboratory techniques especially relating to applications of antigen-antibody interactions
  • To provide extensive tutorial/discussion sessions


Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of this course, the students will be able to:

  • Understand, perform and evaluate the techniques like immunodiagnostic tests, characterization of lymphocytes, purification of antigens, antibody engineering, etc.
  • Assess health problems with immunological background in order to discern whether immunotherapy is applicable
  • Develop approaches for the immune intervention of diseases
