This course provides an investigation of the molecular and cellular components of the vertebrate immune system, emphasizing human immunology. It investigates the general principles that govern different components of the immune system and integrates those principles to develop a broad understanding of immune function. Topics include the generation of immunologic memory, consequences of immune system malfunction, manipulation of the immune system to positively impact human health, and methods that facilitate investigation of new questions about immune system function. Prerequisite: Completion of any one BIOL 201–206 course.
