Dig deeper into immunology and get better exam scores!

In addition to the innate immune system, the adaptive immune system is a very significant subject too. Discover this immunology topic with your lecturer, Dr. Peter Delves, who will provide you with detailed information about:

  • Lymphocyte development and activation
  • Lymphocyte recirculation and homing
  • Antigen processing and presentation

By Jake Bryan C. on 17. January 2017 for Diversity of Major Histocompatibility Complex – Antigen Processing and Presentation

Too many numbers and letters with no direct clinical correlation Too many details with no explicitly stated relevance Topics too segmented and poorly arranged I am lost...

Too much details!
By Jake Bryan C. on 17. January 2017 for Cell Adhesion Molecules (CAMs) – Lymphocyte Recirculation and Homing

Great content but overwhelming. Too much details on the receptors and molecules got me lost in understanding the overall immune response. I appreciate the enthusiasm in detailing everything but the USMLE is devised to evaluate generalists and not immunologists.

Great value
By Bjarni J. on 22. December 2016 for Adaptive Immune System

Great course. Peter really explains the concepts. The genetics can get a bit dry, but when isn't genetics dry.

It is okay for introduction to immunology
By Kehinde B. on 11. December 2016 for Adaptive Immune System

He took time to present the information. The video on adaptive immune system clarifies the difference between innate and adaptive immune system.
