Academic Year 2021/2022
Immunology involves the study of the immune system and is a very important and exciting branch of biological science and medical science. The Immune system protects us from infections but if the immune system does not function correctly, it can lead to inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases, allergy or cancer.
This module will examine the components of the immune system and the roles of immune cells, antibodies, T-cell receptors and MHC molecules in the immune response. Topics will also include mechanisms of immunity, including mechanisms of innate immunity, antigen presentation, cell cooperation in the antibody response, cell-mediated toxicity, and regulation of the immune response. In addition, topics such as defence against infectious agents, vaccination, autoimmunity, hypersensitivity, transplant and inflammation will be covered.
The scheduled practicals for this module are timetabled from 3 to 5:50 on Friday evenings in weeks 7 to 10.
At the end of this module, students will be able to:
1. Describe the elements of the immune response.
2. Describe innate immunity and antigen receptors.
3. Explain lymophocyte activation, relevant control mechanisms and T-cell regulation.
4. Apply their knowledge of the immune system to immunological diseases, malignant disease, infection and vaccines.
5. Discuss immunological methods and their applications.
6. Analyse and interpret ELISA and Flow cytometry data
