Monoclonal antobodies as anticancer drugs

Event Capacity: 200

Year Group: 12 and 13 

Subject(s): Biology, Medicine

Attendee Requirements: None

About: In this session we will cover the vaccination of mice with human proteins or tissues. We will look at how it is possible to select lymphocyte clones producing mouse monoclonal antibodies specific for selected targets and engineer mouse monoclonal antibodies to generate chimeric (mouse/ human) and fully human monoclonal antibodies as therapeutic drugs. By the end of the session you will learn how these drugs work as mechanisms of action. 

Additional Information: Individual bookings can be made by students in Year 12 and 13. Please note you may not be allocated all the places you request depending on availability.
