Course Description

When you're sick, you may wonder, "Why me?" But the real question should be, "Why am I not sick all the time?" You might even ask, "Why does my body respond with a fever, and is it really a good idea to lower it?" This course explores immunology, how the body defends itself from constant assault by parasites and pathogens. This course will present the fundamentals of both innate and adaptive immunity, emphasizing functional interactions among cells and organs. We will cover signaling, pathogen recognition and the division of labor among myeloid, lymphoid and supporting cells. The subject matter will also supply health professionals and biomedical researchers with the basic vocabulary and concepts necessary to understand both clinical press releases and primary literature. The course materials also provide support to other immunology instructors by presenting difficult concepts in creative ways using analogies and models.

Please make this course available again, this is one of best explained courses I´ve ever seen. PHd Alma Moon goes out of her way to make the subject understandable, her use of different learning tool such as: graphics, wordplay, analogies, etc. Is flawless. this course should be available all the time in order to make a difficult subject like immunology relatively easy to learn whether you are not familiar with the subject at all.
