IMM 244: Immunology

Class Program
Credits 2
This course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of immunology. The study of the principles of immunology will provide students with an understanding of how the immune system functions in protecting the human body against non-self, including infectious threats and transformed cells. These concepts will also form the basis of understanding altered immune responses including autoimmune disorders, allergic reactions and immunodeficiencies. Using a diversity of teaching approaches including lectures and case discussions, it is expected that this course will provide the basic scientific principles necessary for developing a solid foundation needed for the clinical immunology course to be offered in the senior year of this program.
