Official Master's Degree in Advanced Immunology
IntroductionImmunology is the branch of biomedical sciences concerned with the study of the physiopathology of the immune system. The study of immunology seeks to solve problems posed by complex pathologies of particular importance to public health. Through methodological development, immunology has become an essential tool in biotechnology, in the design of drugs and diagnostic instruments, and in a multitude of therapeutic applications.
Immunology is a key field in biomedical research around the world. This is directly related to the extraordinary advances in healthcare produced in the field of immunology over the past fifty years: vaccines, transplants, antibodies, anticancer therapy, cell differentiation factors, and anti-inflammatory drug therapy.
The master's degree Immunology provides knowledge and skills that offer students a wide range of opportunities in many areas, such as research and education, biotechnology, medicine and veterinary science. A comprehensive understanding of the immune system also equips students to evaluate pathological processes that directly involve the immune system or are associated with other physiological systems.
