ADVANCED CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

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.

CAREER MILESTONE AT YOUR OWN PLACE

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.

INSTRUCTORS

01

Dr. MATTHIAS SCHRÖDER

Course Co-director

PhD in Immunology at the Division of Immunopharmacology of the University Clinic of Frankfurt am Main. Involved in basic and applied research for immunological interventions to treat cancer for 13 years. Currently involved in the development of fusion proteins to activate receptors of the TNF-superfamily (CD40, CD27 etc.) at a small German Biotech company as Head of Assay Development.
02

Dr. CHRISTOS EVANGELOU

Course Co-director

PhD in Cancer Biology, Division of Molecular and Clinical Cancer Sciences, University of Manchester, UK. Areas of expertise include cancer immunology, melanoma research, cancer immunotherapy, and mechanisms of immunotherapy resistance. During my PhD research, I studied the role of chronic inflammation and the cytokine IFN-gamma in adaptation and immunotherapy resistance in melanoma. By integrating high-throughput transcriptomic analyses and employing various cancer cell lines and animal models, I have developed methods to predict response to immunotherapy in melanoma patients.
03

Dr. VERONICA HUGHES

Course Co-director

Veronica Hughes received her PhD in medical science from the University of Florida, focusing primarily on cancer metastasis and therapeutic interventions.
04

Dr. AMRITA SARKAR

Senior Writer/Editor

PhD in Chemistry with postdoctoral experience at The University of Manchester, UK. Author of 14 scientific publications in peer reviewed international journals.
05

Dr. JUSTINE BRAGUY*

Medical & Scientific Illustrator/Animator

PhD in Biotechnology and Plant Science with BSc in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics and a Master’s in Biotechnology specialized in Synthetic Biology.
*Currently finalising her PhD

FAQ

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.

All our programs are CPD accredited. For more information visit: https://cpduk.co.uk
