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.

Great lecturer! Excellent explanations!
By Andres d. on 26. October 2021 for Presentation of Lipid Antigens by CD1 – Antigen Processing and Presentation

This lecture series was very well done. The material is relevant, the lecturer's explanations a very clear, and the quiz questions are very well formulated. I have come to expect no less from lecturio.

Really helpful videos.. but wish for more mcq questions after each section

Lecturio videos helped me study the subject more easily and also helped me in solving mcq questions. But i wish there were more mcq questions after each section.
