GHHE 000/6190 - Immune System in Health and Disease (3 cr.)



Description
The course in immunology is designed to provide a foundation on the essential mechanisms involved in the development of target-specific defenses. The cells, processes, and chemical mediators participating in the immune response, and the development of immunological memory will be discussed. The reasoning behind medical practices of prophylaxis through vaccination, immunesuppression, transplantation and diagnostic utility of the immune system will also be discussed. The immune system as a target and effector of disease will be illustrated through discussion of immunodeficiency, hypersensitivity responses, and autoimmunity. Finally, intervention in immune-based disorders will be illustrated.
