The course investigates how the various mechanisms of innate and adaptive immunity interact to protect against human disease and how immune dysfunction may cause disease including autoimmunity and hypersensitivity. Immune responses to pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites) will be covered as will the involvement of the immune system in areas such as cancer biology and transplantation. Immunotherapy including vaccines and use of antibodies will be discussed. Practical classes reinforce this knowledge as well as teaching immunological and generic laboratory techniques and a range of transferable skills.
