Molecular and Medical Biotechnology - CBMS731

The unit explores particular areas of contemporary molecular and medical biotechnology building on students’ existing knowledge and importantly, showing how science is translated to applications in health, industry and the environment. Lecture topics range from the production of recombinant biomolecules in various cell factories, applications of stem cells to joint repair, and applications of nanoparticles for diagnostics. We will look into recent technical and conceptual developments and how these relate to our personal lives, society and industry. Visiting lecturers from industry and various academic disciplines will lead discussion on their areas of expertise. A special feature for the 700-level students is an exercise on science communication. The unit also has a significant hands-on laboratory component with tutorials and assignment tasks.
