Undergraduate Academic Catalog 2012-2013
BIOL 4420K Advanced Immunology
Prerequisite: BIOL 4410K
The lecture material focuses in depth on the molecular and cellular events of innate and adaptive immune responses. The function of the innate immune system and rudimentary immune systems in lower organisms will be discussed. Intracellular signaling following cytokine or antigen receptors binding will be presented. Case studies and primary research literature supplement lecture material. Laboratory work uses modern immunological techniques to reinforce lecture material and may require additional time outside of the scheduled lab hours.
