About the Programme

Live cells and biological materials are used in this area of biotechnology and medicine to create pharmacological and diagnostic products. For instance, experts in this field created the vaccinations and antiviral medications/drugs used to prevent and cure Covid-19. The field of Medical biotechnology is much broader than only drug development. Medical biotechnology also includes regenerative medicine, gene therapy, and personalized and precision medicine. In precision medicine, a patient receives treatment that is tailored to their body and genetic makeup. A person's health and the symptoms of a particular disease might be affected by their genetic makeup. Additionally, it is based on knowledge of gene alterations that could impair cellular processes within the body. Many forms of cancer are treated with this kind of therapy. To identify the mutation that gave rise to the disease, normal DNA is compared to DNA from cancer patients. Doctors can choose to recommend a specific treatment for that particular malignancy based on the patient's genetic profile.
