Faglig innhold

The immune system governs defense against pathogens and is of importance for development of autoimmune diseases, allergy and cancer. The course discusses basic immunology including cellular and molecular processes that represents the human immune system. Subjects to be presented include cells and organs of the immune system, antigen, immunoglobulins and antibody diversity, molecular mechanisms of innate and adaptive immunity, the complement system, antigen presentation, cell-mediated effector responses, immunological techniques and select lecture on the immune system in health and disease.


After completing the course MOL3005, the student shall be able to:
- demonstrate the basic knowledge of immunological processes at a cellular and molecular level
- define central immunological principles and concepts
- outline, compare and contrast the key mechanisms and cellular players of innate and adaptive immunity and how they relate
- understand the principles of central (antibody-based) immunological methods to an extent that he/she can set up a theoretical experiment
- elucidate the genetic basis for immunological diversity and the generation of adaptive immune responses
- outline key events and cellular players in antigen presentation, and how the nature of the antigen will shape resulting effector responses
- identify the main mechanisms of inflammation
- understand the principles governing vaccination and the mechanisms of protection against disease
- understand how immunodeficiencies related to disease
- understand and explain the basis of allergy and allergic diseases.
