This course will build on the basic concepts the students learnt in Immunology course. In the first weeks of the course, the applications of these concepts in the context of normal host immune responses such as inflammatory response and mucosal immunity, immunodiagnostic approaches, immunotherapy and immunization will be addressed. In the second half of the course, we will use examples of various immunological disorders as the basis for correlating basic concepts, clinical presentation, immunodiagnostic and immunotherapy approaches. Large group tutorial and laboratory demonstration sessions will be used to reinforce various concepts. In addition, this course will expose the students to emerging clinical immunotherapeutic applications.
