Obiettivi formativi

Il corso si propone di far acquisire allo studente le nozioni relative all’utilizzo di sistemi ricombinanti per la produzione di biofarmaceutici. In particolare, il percorso formativo si focalizza sulle tecniche bio-molecolari utilizzate per l’espressione di proteine ricombinanti in sistemi procariotici ed eucariotici ed i sistemi per la loro purificazione su scala industriale. I diversi sistemi di produzione saranno studiati singolarmente e confrontati.
Si prenderanno in considerazione le diverse procedure utilizzate per l’approvazione di un biofarmaceutico sul mercato con confronti tra la regolamentazione americana ed europea.
Esempi specifici di molecole prodotte in sistemi ricombinanti e loro applicazioni in ambito terapeutico (vaccini e anticorpi), saranno illustrati e approfonditi.
