Boston University School of Medicine and Metropolitan College is hiring a part-time course educator to teach evening courses on the Medical Campus.
GMS BT 160 Biotechnology 1 (Summer session 1)
This course introduces students to the basic sciences of biotechnology (cell biology, immunology, DNA, molecular biology) and describes DNA technologies used in gene therapy and microarray technology and in the production of recombinant protein drugs, antibodies, vaccines, and transgenic animals and plants. The challenges of bringing protein drugs from R&D through large scale manufacturing and the FDA approval process are also discussed.
This course explores some of the ways in which biotechnology has impacted medicine. Students participate in this exploration through readings of recent scientific articles, class discussions and library/research. Recent innovations in the fields of molecular biology, immunology and cell biology have provided new insights into the pathogenesis of cancer, infectious diseases, and other intractable diseases. The biotech industry has contributed immensely to this progress and has furthermore accelerated the development of cutting-edge technologies that promise to deliver more effective drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics.
