Tuesdays 1-3 PM (1300-1500 h)
IMMU 7630 is a course in human-based immunology designed for graduate students, clinicians, and others who are not necessarily immunologists. It considers the broad sweep of immunology and its relationships to other disciplines, focusing on ideas and concepts more than details. Sufficient clinical examples are included to establish relevance, and widely-used immunologically-based methods are discussed. We practice clear communication by constructing and maintaining a blog to which we all contribute. These course notes serve as our textbook. Scroll down for pdf files of each Unit, which corresponds to about an hour of class. Look at the files and decide if you want to print them in B&W or (expensive) color.
Crucial advice: Always read the notes before coming to class!
