Medical Biochemistry – Immunology

Coordinator: Professor Dionysios Drainas,

The main educational goal is the in-depth understanding of the biochemical processes involved in transcription, RNA post-transcriptional processes and translation by post-graduate students. Moreover, the aim of the course is to understand in depth the structure and function of ribosome, the most complicated ribonucleoprotein complex.

Basic concepts of immunology, immune system cells, nomenclature and macromolecular structure of immunoglobulins, monoclonal antibodies, immunochemical analyzes.

Clinical Immunology: T-cell pathogenesis, B-cell pathogenesis, autoimmune diseases, cancer immunology, transplantation-hypersensitivity reactions.
