CAR T cells: Fantastic voyages
of Serial Killers

Biotech Toolboxes


CAR T cells: Fantastic Voyages of Serial Killers

CAR T cells: Fantastic Voyages of Serial Killers

TCAR T cells: Fantastic Voyages of Serial Killers  © © catalinhis course covers all the scientific foundations needed to understand how Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cells are engineered, their mechanism of action, the main challenges associated with CAR T cell therapies and the promises they hold for tomorrow's curative medicine.

This course also includes a first-in-class resource: Biotech Toolboxes. Biotech toolboxes offer different complementary ways to use relevant key terms, essential for mastering the common territory of all biotechnology. These terms constitute a growing Biotech Toolboxes Encyclopedia, a framework for the creation of shareable life sciences knowledge for all stakeholders in healthcare.

Immune Checkpoint inhibitors

Immune Checkpoint inhibitors - Game changers in oncology

Checkpoint inhibitors  © © Design CellsTrying to capture a specific protein amongst thousands of types of proteins is like looking for a needle in a haystack. In the ELISA simulation, you will join scientists who are using a groundbreaking technique for detecting and quantifying substances, such as protein. The method is called Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). You will help Dr. Lisa quantify Factor IX protein, which is used for hemophilia drugs.

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to…
Explain the principle of different ELISA techniques
Apply sandwich ELISA to quantify protein samples
Analyze the standard curve of ELISA experiment
Understand the function of reagents and equipment used in ELISA
Describe the basic troubleshooting process of ELISA

Techniques in Lab: Sandwich ELISA


Inflammation: the good, the bad and the ugly*

Inflammation: the good, the bad and the ugly

Inflammation © © picture-waterfall / stock.adobe.comThis course unravels all the biological mechanisms that are collectively referred to as inflammation. It explains the essential role of inflammation in health and disease and its two-sided nature in promoting and fighting cancer development. It also introduces the main biological actors in inflammation - immune system cells and cytokines – and presents a holistic view of cancer as a dysfunctional ecosystem caused by inflammatory malfunctions.

By the end of the course, you will have a clear conceptual understanding of:
Key biological mechanisms that pertain to different aspects of inflammation;
Cells and cytokines in pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory processes;
The role of inflammation in preventing and fighting diseases and  healing of tissues;
Cancer-fighting and cancer-promoting inflammation;
Cancer immunosurveillance and immunoediting;
The links between nutrition, the microbiota, inflammation and cancer;
Why inflammation, and not mutations, may be the cause of most cancers.
