Innovative immunological approaches aimed at modifying immune response will continue to play a significant role in the future of biomedical, medicine, biotechnology, and the pharmaceutical industries. This course will examine central concepts in mammalian immunology and discuss how these relate to clinical diseases and therapies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Host immunity is a complex process coordinated by multiple cell types that execute diverse functions, which can span both temporal and spatial locations in the body.
  • Various molecular, cellular, and laboratory animal tools can be used to conduct basic immunology research and offer valuable diagnostic tools in characterizing human disease.
  • A successful immune response requires dynamic interactions between multiple immune cell types, and mutation or inhibition of these pathways can lead to disease pathology.
