Biotechnology is fast emerging as the century’s most dynamic force
which can reshape virtually every other industry it intersects and can
redefine our lives. From healthcare to agriculture, pharmaceuticals and
manufacturing processes, from drug discovery to nanotechnology,
biotechnology is creating platform for new products and markets on
many fronts.Ever wonder how new drugs and vaccines are
discovered? Why there are improved and accelerated drug testing,
better diagnostic capabilities, and the availability of foods which
enhance nutritional values? This progress has tremendously improved
healthcare and is viewed by many scientists as only a beginning to the
great era of medical biotechnology. Scientists believe that the
availability of “targeted therapies” for diseases and individuals should
dramatically improve drug safety and efficacy, and the development of
predictive technologies may lead to a new era in disease prevention,
particularly in some of the world’s rapidly developing economies. This
sound rationale holds great potential and promise in the field of
medical biotechnology. This course will cover a number of topics
central to biotechnology, recombinant DNA technology, molecular
and chemical technologies, DNA and protein isolation and assay,
molecular diagnostic techniques, genetic and molecular
identification of therapeutic targets, development of therapeutics,
therapeutic delivery systems, and regulatory issues.
