Adaptive Immune System

by Peter Delves, PhD

The adaptive immune response is characterized by the onset of immunity-related reactions triggered by a specific antigen, as well as the continuous development of immunological “memory” to ensure that future encounters are resolved in a more efficient fashion. Although it’s differentiated from the innate immune response by these factors, both work in very close association.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the processes of lymphocyte development, activation, homing and recirculation, and antigen processing and presentation.

For optimal comprehension, the student must have a preliminary understanding of molecular and cellular biology, emphasizing gene expression, protein synthesis, signal molecules, and cellular receptors.
