Horizon Campus Addresses on Latest Scientific Trends

Flu or fever is one of the most common terms associated with the Sri Lankan Society. A contagious viral fever has become a common scenario followed by sudden rains or during the monsoon seasons in Sri Lanka. Severe and deadly diseases such as Tuberculosis, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio, Rubella and even cervical cancer can be prevented by proper immunization. But, the medical scientist hasn’t been able to tame the “Flu” with a vaccine, until now.
A new type of flu vaccine that contains “ancestral” flu virus genes have shown in providing broad protection against many different kinds of the flu, according to an early study in animals conducted by a group of Scientists. Although the experiments were conducted on mice, researchers hope that their approach might one-day lead to a “universal” flu vaccine that would provide long-term protection against flu viruses. The ultimate goal of the research team entails in formation of a vaccine with the ability to vaccinate once and provide lifelong protection from many kinds of flu.
Horizon campus, being the most highly accredited non state university in Sri Lanka always follow latest reliable updatesin the field of Science and educate undergraduatesas well as diploma students who enroll for Biotechnology programs in B.Sc (Biotechnology) and Diploma in Biotechnologyawarded by Nilai University, Malaysia.
Undergraduates follow modules termed Principles of Immunology and Immunological techniques in Biotechnology whichincludes the vaccination principles and recent topics.
Immunologists attempt to understand how the immune system develops, how the bodydefends itself against disease, and what happens when it all goes wrong.
The subject dealswith the chemistry of microorganism, plants and animal systems. Therefore, opens up thescopes in the field of medical, pharma, biochemical engineering,molecular biology, and as an academician, in the agricultural research and developments, as abiotechnologist and so on. In short,students become eligible for the bright career in most of the branches oflife sciences.
Well-equipped, state of the art laboratories for Bioscience, Tissue culture and Chemistry provides students an excellent platform and a workspace to pursue their lab work and research studies.
