MSc in Translational Immunobiology (TIB)
Research into improving therapy for patients has been developing since the 1990’s. An early example was translating in vitro observations into successful clinical trials for anti-TNF in rheumatoid arthritis patients. This unique programme will focus on the processes involved in translating immunobiology research, using the eye as a model.
What will I learn?
The processes involved in translating immunological discoveries into predictive, diagnostic and/or therapeutic applications will be described in depth, using examples of successful translational studies to illustrate key aspects: the clinical question; study design and limitations. Students will also attend scientific lectures in relevant subject areas (immunology, molecular cell biology, pharmacology), gaining hands-on experience in an original research project.
