This is a broad based course which entails certain complex issues of biology and Medicine at an advanced level, and introduces students to innovative research in some specific areas of scientific work on Advance Biomedical Research.
Methods or procedures that are used to study diseases are covered in Biomedical techniques (Experimental methods, computational methods, tissue engineering, immunology, approaches and tools for biological research). It is a useful tool for postgraduate students in biomedical subjects or clinicians working in the laboratory.
Upon completion of the course, the graduate students will be familiar with the basics of modern methods of biomedical sciences:
- Recent advances in immunology
- Tissue engineering
- Analytical biochemistry, behavioral methods, biological model, techniques in medicine considers
- Methods or procedures that are used in science or practice of the diagnosis and prevention of disease or disorder
- Structural and functional genomics, biomedicine, molecular enzymology, and molecular immunology, manipulation and analysis of DNA, RNA, protein, and lipid
The course participants upon completion will be able to:
- Embark on a research project within a working laboratory at Biomedical Research
- Be familiar with the most innovative techniques used in clinical research laboratories
- Be provided by an excellent tool for understanding new concepts
- Write up a qualitative research protocol
- Tissue engineering
- Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2018: Allison and Honjo:”Cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation.”
- Characterization and counting of dopaminergic synapses in neurodegenerating diseases (i.e. SMA)
- Next Generation Sequencing
