BioBasics 201: Targeted Biologics for the Non-Scientist is an intensive course specifically designed for graduates of BioBasics 101 or learners who understand fundamental biopharma industry science. The inspiration for targeted biologics is our own immune system, so the course begins with an in-depth explanation of immunology. It next includes a discussion of immunotherapies, vaccines, cell therapies, regenerative medicines, gene therapies, and RNA-based drugs. Join us and enhance your fluency in the science, development challenges, and medical potential of targeted biologics.  This is a recording of a BioBasics 201 course given live.
