Advanced ImmunoBiology

The curse usually takes place in the Autumn from October to December. It is designed to give the student the possibility to reinforce the basic understanding of immunology and to update with the most recent immunology-based therapies. The course is also actively promoting some important “skills-for-life” through activities that focused on student-student and student-teacher interactions and group work. 

The course consists in two parts, the first part is focused on “brushing up” the basic immunology through group work and some other activities. In this first part we address topics such as innate immunity, complement, T cell response, B cells response, allergies, and so on.

In the second part, we address some of the most pressing topics in immunology-based therapies such as immunotherapy for cancer including cell and virus therapy, therapy based on microvescicles, vaccines and vaccination, lymphocyte homing in therapy, response to bacteria biofilms and so on.

This second part might vary by year to year as we try to select the most recent and advanced topics. These topics are usually thought by expert in that specific area.

In addition to Vince are also responsible for this course:

Adj. professor Pia Siljander

PhD Student Cristian Capasso

Postdoc Erkko Ylösmäki


Biological drugs II

This course usually takes place in spring, from April to June.  It consists of lectures, a workshop with student presentations and focused online assignments related to the lecture topics that will include online visualization of relevant methodologies in the discovery and development of biological drugs.

The content of the lectures will include classification of biological drugs, their production and their therapeutic use. Experimental biological drugs of particular interest will also be discussed (gene and cell therapy).

Please note that these are only general information so please consults the weboodi for detailed and updated information about the course.
