Immunobiology II


Immunobiology II is a continuation of Immunobiology I (Bio 5053) taught by the faculty members of the Immunology Program and consists of two sections. In the first section, selected topics are covered in depth that were introduced in Immunobiology I. These include methods in modern immunology, tumor immunology, evolution of the immune response, mucosal immunity, vaccines, lymphoorganogenesis and immunopathogenesis. The second section involves Molecular mechanisms of disease (formerly Bio 5261) and will cover human diseases that appear to have an immunological basis. In addition to lectures and evaluation of recent clinical and relevant basic immunology literature, students will be provided with an opportunity for direct patient encounters when feasible, providing students with a human aspect to discussions of immune pathogenesis. Diseases covered will include rheumatoid arthritis, allergy, lupus, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer immunotherapies. Prereq: DBBS/MSTP students and Immunobiology I. Students not participating in the Immunology graduate program must obtain permission from the faculty leaders to enroll in the course. 4 units. Permission of Instructor is required.
