BIOL160 HM - Molecular Immunology

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Schulz

Description: The number of microbes in the human body outnumber human cells by 10:1. How does the immune system identify and respond to the small number of these microbes that can cause illness or death? In this course, we will explore fundamental processes of the immune system and how they relate to medicine and biotechnology. Topics will include antibody and T-cell receptor structure and function, cells and molecular mediators that regulate the immune response, allergy, autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, tissue and organ transplants, and tumor immunology.
