BT-GY 6023 Biotechnology and Health Care

3 Credits
Biotechnology’s contribution to modern health care stretches far beyond developing new therapeutic entities. This course provides an overview of key cutting-edge technologies such as stem-cell research and therapeutic cloning and demonstrates how their applications change “the conventional” in terms of availability of new treatments, monitoring services and diagnostics. The course also examines the implications of Human Genome Project for health care and the role of genetics and epigenetic modifications of genes in health and disease. The role of biotechnology in managing a number of sociologically high-impact diseases in developed and developing countries is highlighted.

Prerequisite(s): Adviser’s approval.
