BIOL 337 - Immunity and Pathogenesis

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4NS

Our immune system protects us against pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites, and also plays important roles in normal body functions including recognizing and eliminating cancer cells. In this class, we will examine the many functions of the immune system in health and disease, with particular focus on the innate and adaptive components of the mammalian immune system. We will also learn how pathogens subvert immunity, which can result in infectious diseases. The laboratory will explore immunological experimental techniques and investigate cellular and molecular host/pathogen interactions.
