Ever wonder how new drugs and vaccines are discovered? Why there are improved and accelerated drug testing, better diagnostic capabilities, and the availability of foods which enhance nutritional values? This progress has tremendously improved healthcare and is viewed by many scientists as only a beginning to the great era of medical biotechnology. Scientists believe that the availability of “targeted therapies” for diseases and individuals should dramatically improve drug safety and efficacy, and the development of predictive technologies may lead to a new era in disease prevention, particularly in some of the world’s rapidly developing economies. This sound rationale holds great potential and promise in the field of medical biotechnology.
The IMU Medical Biotechnology programme has incorporated key features to prepare the modern Medical Biotechnologist for challenges beyond tomorrow. These features offer an appreciable advantage to students as there is significant emphasis on concepts and theories important for creating a stable platform to develop technical know-how and skills.
The technical skills of the student begins with learning in a controlled laboratory environment. As the student progresses, he/she will be taught to think and solve problems analytically through modules that were specially designed for them to make independent decisions.
Furthermore, IMU has a myriad of expertise in the field of medical and pharmaceutical sciences. The faculty members are already engaged in active research work, providing a suitable environment for the medical biotechnology student to experience the thinking, planning, application and discussion related to research.
