This course has been designed to introduce the students to the vast, fascinating and complex field of immunology from the physiological, cellular, molecular, and clinical perspectives. We will not only learn about the development, functioning and regulation of the innate and adaptive immune system, but also consider applied topics such as microbial strategies of immune evasion, immunodeficiencies, hypersensitivities, autoimmune disorders, cancer immunology, transplantation immunology, and vaccines. Course instruction will include problem solving, immunology lab techniques, case study-based discussion and discussion of primary research articles in immunology.
