New subject

For the autumn semester the RECAMO Centre and the Institute of Pharmacology of the Faculty of Medicine of Masaryk University has prepared a new subject for postgraduate students of the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Science of Masaryk University focused on development of medicinal products.

The student will learn the “evidence-based medicine” concept, personalization of therapy, therapy prediction and development of biomarkers in oncology. By passing the subject, the student will be familiarized – in link with specific fields of the tumour biology and the drug life cycle - with the following: development, pre-clinical testing and characterization of drugs, development of therapeutic antibodies, clinical trials, incl. the regulatory and legislative aspects. The student will know definition, regulatory and legislative aspects of the modern therapy and will learn the latest knowledge and procedures of the gene and cellular therapy in oncology in greater details. The student will be familiarized with the current state of personalized therapy of hemato-oncological malignities, solid tumours of adults and childhood malignities.
