Course Objectives The goal of this course is to give students an understanding of the fundamental principles of immunology and their application; to developing an understanding of the human immune system and how it reacts and interacts with the environment to develop an understanding of immunology-based scientific and research methods
Textbook Kuby-Immunology, Kindt-Goldsby-Osborne 2007, W.H. Freeman and Co., New York, 6th edition.
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Explain the fundamental principles of immunology and its importance
  2. Apply immunological principles to technical applications
  3. Explain the science underlying immunological facts, observations, and phenomena
  4. Discuss and explain B and T cell responses in adaptive immunity
Teaching Methods This course employs a range of teaching and learning methods (lecturing, written assignments, essays, group discussions, laboratory work, result analysis ).
