BioBasics 101: The Biology of Biotech for the Non-Scientist 8-hour course

BioBasics 101: The Biology of Biotech for the Non-Scientist is an intensive eight-hour course that explains the foundational science upon which all biopharma therapies are based. Day one focuses on the function of DNA, RNA, proteins, and cell signaling and how each interacts in both healthy and diseased tissue. Day two builds on your new-found molecular biology knowledge. This includes a more in-depth look at genetic disease and how genetic engineering is used to create personalized medicine options for patients. The course ends with a survey of small molecule drugs, biologics, and vaccines and explains how each mitigates disease at the molecular level. BioBasics 101 will increase your scientific knowledge so that you can converse more effectively with colleagues, clients, regulators, and scientists.

BioBasics 201: Targeted Biologics for the Non-Scientist 9-hour 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.
