Short Term Course on 

Advanced Biological and Chemical Understanding of Disease Diagnostics and Therapeutics 

17th-19th May 2018

About the program: 

This short-term course is aimed to cover biology and chemical aspects in disease progression, diagnostic approaches and relevant therapeutics. Attendees will be exposed to the importance of interface of biology and chemistry in biomedical sciences. The key queries that we would like address through an interactive session: How the regulatory protein post-translational modifications (PTMs) fuels disease development? The crucial role of metabolomics and proteomics to identify, characterize PTMs. We will discuss in detail about the viruses and other infectious agents in human infection. How do the PTM and OMICS technologies help in the evaluation of infection associated disease pathogenesis? How does the pathogen hijack host cellular mechanism? Advancement of the biomedical field through nanotechnology in diagnosis and therapy of diseases will also be discussed. Further, we will also shed light on how metal ions play a crucial role in disease development and how can it be used in diagnostics as well as in therapeutics.

Program Objectives: 

Understanding the underlying mechanistic details is the key for diagnosis and treatment of various chronic and lethal diseases. Modern chemical biology and biomedical approaches have fetched a new era for the disease diagnosis and therapeutics. While a growing interest in understanding the role of metal ions in acute as well as chronic diseases have emerged in last two decades, it goes without any saying that most of the diseases, if not all, proceed with a dynamic change in the genome, proteome and finally metabolome. At the same time, advancement in the diagnostics and novel targeted drug delivery systems, in particular utilizing nanotechnology is revolutionary. Taken together, this program is aimed to explore why a disease is caused and how one can cure it from a chemistry and biology perspective. This course will be helpful to the individuals from biology, medicine, chemistry and pharmacy background
