Study of the human immune system and learnings in immunology is the hot subject currently as the whole world is gripped by the virus threat and everyone is talking about the immune system in one way or other. Even earlier the subject of immunology attracted many researchers and scientists to search for vaccines and medication for certain ailments where the immune system failure was the topmost consideration for finding the cure. This is definitely a niche area and there would be good demand for these people in the pharmaceutical and medical industry in times to come.
Eligible candidates can consider going for this learning cum training for enhancing their knowledge in this unique area and then associate with the practical work in an industry or research institution or Medical college etc. One thing I want to mention is that today there are many research and project works going in this area of immunology and it would be pertinent to go through those papers and their summaries to acquaint oneself with the advancements and propositions being made by the scientists and researchers elsewhere. That would immensely help in carrying out the assigned or opted project in this training course.
