Main areas of study will include: an overview of the complex cellular and molecular mechanisms of tolerance to non-infectious or self-antigens including the role of T regulatory cells and AIRE and the importance of tolerance for pregnancy; how tolerance can be broken to induce autoimmunity, asthma or other atopic diseases; an appreciation of how the immune system can be evaded to cause disease by e.g. by pathogens and in cancer;
