The content is modularised with the first module building on immunology knowledge acquired at 3rd year and providing students with a broad understanding of all elements of the immune system, how they function to maintain health and how immune dysfunction can cause disease.
The second module explores current knowledge of protein structure and function as proteins are central to all immunological processes and understanding them is essential. Topics include how protein engineering allows the design of therapeutic antibodies.
The third module will use lectures and tutorials to explore current important hypotheses and advances in immunological theory, and technologies at the forefront of immunological research.
The final module also considers advanced molecular techniques in a series of online workshops giving a more in depth understanding of current research techniques.
