Course Aims: The aim of this course is to provide an in-depth understanding of how the immune system acts to protect us at a molecular level, and how in the future we could manipulate it to generate novel immunotherapies. Main Learning Outcomes include understanding the molecular mechanisms that allow the immune system to respond to the many challenges it faces. These include drawing out functional insights from recent studies that identify novel signalling pathways and molecular interactions affecting disease susceptibility and resistance. It also covers recent progress on how early interactions with infection can shape and tailor immune responses.
