- Course objectives
- The general aim of the course is that students will achieve a basic knowledge in immunobiology and clinical immunology. The immune system of vertebrates, namely humans, will be emphasized.
- Learning outcomes
- On completion of the course, students will be able to understand basic principles of immunology; explain principles of innate and adaptive immune response, immunoregulation, and immunomodulation; define the role of individual constituents of the immune system and its mediators in immune response to infection; and understand the basic principles of immune system pathology and the role of immune system in transplantation and cancer.
