The ultimate purpose of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries is the development and delivery of therapeutics. This course covers fundamentals of engineering and the pharmaceutical sciences related to therapeutics, including basic pharmaceutics/drug delivery, pharmacokinetics, biomolecular kinetics, and regulatory issues. Specific focus is placed on biotherapeutics, including antibodies and protein engineering,RNA and DNA therapeutics (gene therapy and RNAi), extracellular vesicle biotechnology (exosomes), and cell-based therapies, including stem cells. The use of delivery technologies to enable therapeutics (e.g. nanomedicine) will also be discussed.
