Courses

Survey of the basic principles of human health and disease from an immunological perspective. The course is designed for students with little previous exposure to immunology or microbiology. Topics covered will include the organization of the immune system, evolution of the immune system, as well as the cellular and molecular mechanisms used by the immune system to protect humans from disease.

Students with senior standing (or others with consent of the instructor) report on and discuss current biological problems as presented in principle journals, abstracts and reviews. The work of each seminar is usually built upon a single unifying content area.
