Introduction

A balanced approach to deliver a broad introduction to the field of immunology is my aim. This will include basic cellular and humoral immunology, development and evolution of the immune system, immunogenetics, and some immunopathology. Based on the surveys, the lectures and discussion topics will be tailored to fit the class as much as possible. [Some restrictions do apply. ;-)]

Discussion sections will include a variety of activities, including hands-on exercises with modeling, computers, focused discussion topics, short presentations, and reviews.

Prerequisites: Completion of the lower-division core in Biology or equivalent; one course in Physiology upper-division core or Biochemistry, and one course in Molecular & Cell Biology upper-division core. Strongly recommended: a course focused on some type of infectious disease, such as Bacteriology, Microbiology, Parasitology, or Virology. If in doubt, please contact me. Open to non-majors with consent of instructor.
