Includes complement systems, immunochemistry and immunoassay, the nature of cellular activation and effector generation, immunodeficiency, tolerance, tissue transplantation, hypersensitivity, immune regulation and specific diseases illustrative of the successes and failures of the Immune System. Prerequisites: Bio 2970 and Chem 262. Interested Juniors in their second semester are particularly encouraged to register for this course. Juniors wishing to take the course but who find themselves waitlisted should contact the instructor. In addition to the regular meeting three times a week, students should also sign up for the Discussion Section that meets from 5:30 - 6:30.
