This course offers the student a comprehensive view of modern immunology at the molecular and cellular level. The first half of the course presents the fundamentals of immunology, beginning with innate immunity, followed by a discussion of the structure and function of important molecules in the immune system, such as antibodies, major histocompatibility antigens, and the T-cell receptor. This portion of the course is concluded with a discussion of the development and function of the cellular immune response. The second half of the course is focused on applied immunology and discusses hyper-sensitivity, autoimmunity, immunodeficiencies, tumor immunology, infectious disease, and transplantation immunology. Presentations at the end of the course provide an opportunity for the student to explore additional topics in contemporary immunology.
