A shareable knowledge course for pharma/biotech professionals.

2
days

For a long time, the immune system was thought to be merely a defense system against infections, isolated from other physiological systems…

We now know that it is much more than that. From monitoring the quality of every gene expressed in our bodies to killing old or imperfect cells and repairing all kinds of tissue damage, the immune system can keep us healthy throughout  most of our lives or make us terribly ill.In addition to offering key insights into health and diseases, immunology  has provided scientists  and doctors with incredible tools for research, therapeutics and diagnostics. Without immunology, biomedical researchers would be blind. No matter what your line of work may be in pharma or biotech, gaining a good basic understanding of immunology and its applications is essential to bioliteracy.
