Graduate

201. Introductory Immunology (4)

Lecture—4 hours. Prerequisite: graduate standing. Enrollment limited to 30 students. Comprehensive introduction to the principles of immunology.—F. (F.) Miller

201L. Advanced Immunology Laboratory Rotations (4)

Laboratory/discussion—12 hours. Laboratory assignment in two research laboratories. Individual research problems with emphasis on methodological/procedural experience and experimental design. Student writes a project outline and gives oral presentation. May be repeated two times for credit. (S/U grading only.)—F. (F.) McSorley

202L. Advanced Immunology Laboratory Rotations (5)

Laboratory/discussion—15 hours. Laboratory assignment in two research laboratories. One four-week and one six week assignment in immunology research laboratories. Individual research problems with an emphasis on methodological/procedural experience and experimental design. May be repeated two times for credit. (S/U grading only.)—W. (W.) McSorley

203. Cancer Immunology (2)

Lecture—1 hour; term paper. Covers concepts in cancer biology, progression and immune evasion. It will also cover topics such as: immune surveillance, immune effector mechanisms and current concepts in immune therapy. Offered in alternate years.—S. Murphy

204. Topics in Innate Immunity (2)

Extensive writing or discussion—1 hour; performance instruction—1 hour. Prerequisite: course 201 or equivalent; course 293 preferred. Restricted to first- or second-year GGI and MGG students; others with permission of instructor; enrollment limited to 18 students. Covers current topics in the field of innate immunity through student seminar presentations and critical evaluation of the literature. Concepts include: pathogen recognition, intercellular communication, specialized cellular function and effector/signaling molecules. Offered in alternate years.—Su. Bevins

210. Topics on Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation (1)

Seminar—1 hours. Prerequisite: consent of instructor. Topics will include a broad range of frontiers in neuroimmunology and neuroinflammation. Research articles in current literature will serve to guide in-depth discussions of experimental approaches, technical aspects of experimental techniques, data interpretation, and other relevant aspects of each topic. (S/U grading only.)—F. (F.) Soulika

292. Immunotoxicology Seminar (2)

Seminar—2 hours. Prerequisite: graduate standing in Pharmacology/Toxicology, Immunology, Physiology, or Biochemistry. Seminar presentations dealing with principles of xenobiotic effects on immune system functions and specific examples of drugs and environmental chemicals exerting toxic effects on the immune system. (S/U grading only.) 

293. Current Concepts in Immunology (4)

Lecture/discussion—4 hours. Prerequisite: Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology 126 or consent of instructor. Innate and acquired immunity as defense mechanisms against disease. Mechanisms regulating the distinct cell types driving these responses and current concepts in the literature.—W. (W.) Baumgarth

294. Comparative Clinical Immunology (4)

Lecture/discussion—4 hours. Prerequisite: Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology 126 or consent of instructor. Clinical immunology in animals and man. Pathogenesis of representative infectious diseases, hypersensitive reactions, and autoimmunity. Emphasis on specific and nonspecific immune effector mechanisms to combat infections or mediate pathology. Not open for credit to students who have completed course 294A. Offered in alternate years.—Gershwin

295. Cytokines (3)

Lecture—2 hours; discussion—1 hour. Prerequisite: course 293 or consent of instructor. Cytokines and their involvement in human and animal physiology/disease, molecular mechanisms and receptor signaling. Immune and non-immune actions. Overlapping/redundant functions (referred to as the "cytokine network").

296. Advanced Topics in Immunology (2)

Seminar—2 hours. Prerequisite: graduate standing or consent of instructor. Presentation, discussion, and analysis of faculty research topics in immunology. Required for Immunology Graduate Students every year until they have passed their qualifying exam. May be repeated for credit. (S/U grading only.)—F. (F.) Maverakis

297. Mucosal Immunology (2)

Lecture—1 hour; discussion—1 hour; term paper. Prerequisite: course 201 or equivalent. Basic concepts and current research topics in the field of mucosal immunology, with an emphasis on human immunology. Major emphases include innate and adaptive mucosal immunity, the gastrointestinal tract, the lung, lymphocyte trafficking, and mucosal vaccination. Offered in alternate years.—(W.) Shacklett
