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.

Thank you
By Ami A. on 18. January 2023 for Overview of Lymphoid Tissues – Lymphocyte Activation

It is a good introdduction video! I love this class

A miracle called professor Delves
By Mohammadhossein G. on 10. October 2022 for Adaptive Immune System

Professor Delvies is perfect! I have just figured out what immunology is! Thanks Lecturio. Thanks professor Delves.

Provides deep understanding in a short amount of time
By Mohammed S. on 07. June 2022 for Adaptive Immune System

Not much needs to be said, the presentation speaks for itself! Watch for yourself and you'll see how informative this is! The Genetic recombination of B-cells' antibodies and receptors was so hard for me to understand, and all it took was one video (less than 10 minutes) to understand the concept fully. Great professor!

Wow, great lecture!
By Nina O. on 08. March 2022 for Cell Adhesion Molecules (CAMs) – Lymphocyte Recirculation and Homing

Great lecture. I was able to learn some things I did not initially know. I appreciate the details. Thank you and please keep doing what you do to help people like us to know more.
