The Biotechnology masters program offers Master of Arts (A.M.) and Master of Science (Sc.M) degrees and is designed for students interested in a range of topics related to the field of biotechnology and therapeutics including drug discovery, drug & gene delivery, cell therapy, and biotechnology business.
The educational objectives of the program are to promote an understanding of: 1.) the designs and materials used in novel cell and drug delivery systems; 2.) the molecular, cellular and animal sciences of drug discovery & drug development; and 3.) the development and testing of cell-based therapies for the treatment of diseases. We also offer courses on the business and management of biotechnology. Active areas of research include: cancer therapeutics, bioadhesive drug delivery systems, mesenchymal stem cells, alternatives to animal testing, nerve guidance channels, cartilage regeneration, cardiac arrhythmias, micro-vesicles, anti-microbials, insulin regulation, neuroactive & neuroprotective agents and cell delivery & encapsulation strategies.
