Recorded BioBasics 201: Targeted Biologics for the Non-Scientist Master Course

This is the recorded BioBasics 201 course with the same content, interactive exercises, and course materials that are given in the live version. You have three months to view this course. 

BioBasics 201: Targeted Biologics for the Non-Scientist is an intensive, nine-hour course focused on vaccines, cell therapies, gene therapies, therapeutic antibodies, and RNA-based drugs. Biopharma’s inspiration for the development of targeted biologics is our own human immune system, so we begin with an in-depth explanation of immunology. The course then focuses on the science, challenges, and medical promise of next-generation targeted biologics. BioBasics 201 is designed for the non-scientist who has taken BioBasics 101 or for those who understand the basics of DNA, RNA, proteins, and cell signaling. BioBasics 201 is taught by industry experts who explain how these complex drugs work in a simple, engaging manner.
