Explore the immune system’s potential to fight cancer!
In today’s modern world, the science of therapeutic intervention has progressed a long way. With the emergence of many chronic conditions like cancer and autoimmune conditions, understanding the genetic basis for immune response has begun to gain greater attention. The adaptive nature of the human immune system is one of the major sources of greater variation in human genes, with some of the sites of variation being single nucleotide polymorphisms, the HLA locus, the chromosomal region that helps to distinguish self from non-self, uniquely randomized T- and B-cell receptor genes that encode our immune repertoires and so on. This has thus resulted in an understanding that gives importance to genetic factors in immune interventions.
Immunogenomics, an information science, combines the fields of immunology and genomics in developing enhanced immune responses for conditions like cancer. At present, this science has developed based on the existing sequencing techniques, along with microarrays, mass spectrometry, NMR, chromatography, PCR, mass cytometry, data repositories, experimental designs, and statistical methods. It is extensively being used for developing personalised medications for the treatment of conditions like cancer. However, this is restricted to cancer while importance is not being sufficiently given to other conditions that can be better treated and managed using personalised medications and interventions. There are also exists some gaps in our due to limitations in methodologies available such as mapping interactions amongst the microbiome and the host immune system.
This field has immense potential in providing insights into understanding the changes to the human immune system with the progression of illnesses. Other potential areas of medical relevance include immune regeneration, immunosenescence, immune decline, and heterochthonous immunity.
The field of Immunogenomics further builds on the foundations of Cancer Biology. The course provides an in-depth overview of the genomics of immune cells and tumour cells that are used to build immune response against cancer. The Immunogenomics course will allow you understand the molecular changes in our immune system and the biological mechanisms underlying the development of cancers. Based on these concepts, the course is designed to help develop finer understanding of treatment and health.
Understanding one of the highly studied conditions of the present times: Cancer
This course is designed to be taken up by a wide range of professionals with appropriate backgrounds. Bioscience graduates and postgraduate scholars, researchers, and industry professionals who are keen to understand Immunogenomics as a subject and might have potential applications in the future careers will find this course suitable for their needs. A background in bioscience is crucial for understanding and undertaking self-learning in this field.
This self-learning course provided in ONUMMIX™ aims to give learners an in-depth understanding of the rapidly evolving field of Immunogenomics. This certification will give you the chance to stay ahead of the game in your own field and career. Designed as an online course, allow you to study from anywhere and at any time without having to change your schedule. It has simplified assessments by allowing you to take a self-evaluation test at the end of the course for completion of your certification.
An Online Self Learning Certification Course is an online course that allows you to learn from anywhere at any time. You can learn this self-learning course at your own pace by logging in whenever you wish to!
Enrolling for this course is a very simplified process involving online enrolment. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email immediately, containing all the details. It is not required for you to be online at the commencing date. You can engage with the course at times deemed convenient for your schedule. Your course progress can be tracked using the Completion Indicators in the course outline and on each unit page that note the completion of each lesson.
This course is designed to be completed within six months. Failing to successfully complete the self-evaluation test would then require you to revise the course again within the course of the next six months to complete your certification. Your credential would expire if the course isn’t completed within this time frame.
This course relies on a system of self-evaluation for assessment of personal learning. Your certification course is complete with the successful passing of this self-evaluation test.
The Cancer biology course is recommended as precursor to Immunogenomics, a more advanced and specialised area that develops on some of the concepts introduced in Cancer Biology.
ONUMMIX® is envisioned and designed by a highly skilled interdisciplinary team of creative professionals who are the experts in their fields. Together, we have crafted the curricula with integrated multimedia elements and didactic visuals to bring medical concepts to life through their real world and clinical applications.
The development of our courses is guided by extensive learning research and implementation of the latest and best practises in the field of biomedical visualisation. Our aim here is to enable learners who enrol for the course to gain a conceptual and application-oriented understanding of scientific principles.
