This course provides a broad coverage of material describing the principles of immunology. The course is intended for students majoring in any area of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Science or Medical Science interested in gaining a background in Immunology, and for those undertaking Microbiology or Medical Microbiology and Immunology majors. Topics addressed include the multiple components of the immune response and how they interact; an introduction to the concepts behind the regulation of the immune response; and an introduction to the applied and clinical aspects of immunology, including allergy, transplantation, immunodeficiency, leukemias and lymphomas. The practical program introduces students to critical immunological techniques including cell purification and characterisation, and immunological assays. It also introduces students to computer modelling of immune function and immunogenetic analyses, as well as training students to critically evaluate immunological issues of community importance, such as controversies surrounding vaccination.
