This module will build on the second year immunology teaching, to provide in-depth knowledge of fundamental immuneprocesses, of the ways in which these interact as a complex system that provides protection against infection disease but can alsocause disease when dysregulated and of the importance of immunology in modern medicine. There will be emphasis onmolecular immunology and the key signalling pathways that underpin immunological mechanisms. Lectures in specialised areas of the subject will be given by experts in their field, providing a sense of the frontiers of their subject. In addition to formal
lectures, the course will provide tutorials with opportunities to critically-examine research papers. We also hope to offer laboratory practical sessions in which students will be able their own classic immunology experiments.
