This course gives you a fundamental understanding of how our immune system functions. You are introduced to the cells and factors which mediate the various types of innate and adaptive immune responses. The course also covers clinically relevant topics such as allergic reactions, tumor immunology, and immunology of infections. Examples of therapeutic and prophylactic interventions arising from the latest advances in immunology such as CAR T-cells for cancer treatment and vaccine candidates for SARS-CoV-2, are used to illustrate these concepts.
