Core Course

Medical Biotechnology and Drug Development
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 

The course explores the impact that biotechnology has on medicine, including personalized medicine, immune response reactions and side effects, vaccine development and stem cell technology. Topics are covered using a 3-module approach: drug discovery and development, peptides and nucleotides as biopharmaceuticals, and immune defense-related biopharmaceuticals. The course further compares the Danish and European pharmaceutical and biotechnology research communities, and the business aspects involved in drug development through Field Studies and during the Study Tours.

Core Course Study Tours

This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:

  • Week-Long Study Tour: Lisbon-Porto (Fall/Spring) or London (Spring) or Edinburgh (Fall)

  • Core Course Week: Denmark

Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.

While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
