This module will build on the second year Basic Immunology course, to provide in-depth knowledge of fundamental immune processes, of the ways in which these interact as a complex system that provides protection against infection disease but can also cause disease when dysregulated and of the importance of immunology in modern medicine. There will be emphasis on molecular immunology and the key signalling pathways that underpin immunological mechanisms. Lectures in specialised areas of the subject will be given by experts in their field, providing a sense of the frontiers of their subject. In addition to formal lectures, the course will provide tutorials with opportunities to critically-examine research papers.
