The presence in Ireland of 9 out of the 10 world's largest biopharma companies, all of which have interests in this area, is generating significant demand for graduates with relevant knowledge and industry relevant skillsets and the requirement to upskill existing employees of the biopharma industry and abroad.
The School of Medicine has multiple world-class researchers working in the immunotherapeutics field. This new postgraduate diploma in Immune Therapies aims to provide biopharma employees and graduate students with in-depth specialist knowledge in the fundamentals of immunotherapeutics through research led teaching and practical training in technologies relevant to immunotherapeutic research.
The 2-year part-time postgraduate course will provide an opportunity for scientists who wish to upskill to continue and advance to high level jobs in the Irish biopharma industry or continue in further biomedical-related research. The new course is a new 2-year part time Postgraduate Diploma with a direct entry to Postgraduate Certificate in year 1 with progression to the Postgraduate Diploma (top up) in year 2.
Applicants should have a 2.1 honours degree (level 8) in any bioengineering, veterinary or biologically related degree (BSc. Honours) or be medically qualified (MB, BCh, BAO or equivalent from a recognised medical school).
