Immunological Biotherapies: Concepts and Development


With unprecedented technological advances and improvement of our knowledge in the pathophysiology of diseases, immunological biotherapies - such as immunotherapy, new vaccine strategies, cell and gene therapies - now represent innovative therapeutic strategies.

These new treatments, on their own or combine with conventional therapeutics, revolutionize the fields of applications in medicine with the development of more effective therapeutic approaches or personalized for patients.

That is why many pharmaceutical industries invest heavily in research and development biotherapies to propose new therapeutic products.

It is therefore necessary to provide a high level of training provided by the best specialists in the field.

This teaching will bring you an extensive knowledge on these new therapeutic tools, from their concept to their development to clinical trials, which will allow you to understand the challenges and problems of the new medical approaches, and promote your professional integration.

IS-IBCD is complementary to the Master international PIM “Biotherapies in Immunology” of Immunology speciality from BMC (Biologie moléculaire et Cellulaire), Faculté de Biologie at Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris.
