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

Quiz questions will help you prepare for the USMLE, and additional download material, which includes presentation slides and related articles, will give you detailed information on every topic.

Great overall review, needs more details.
By Isaac V. on 25. March 2017 for Adaptive Immune System

Great fast, overall review. I absolutely disagree with people saying there are too much details; in fact, I would have liked more details regarding specific processes.

I love these courses. I'm only a high school student, preparing to go to medical university. They help me to better understand biology or to be exact, human body. My mother tongue is not English which makes a little bit difficult to understand names in biology for example why T-cells called T-cells. Furthermore what I miss from the lectures are animations sometimes. I know I'm a kid, but animations help to visualize and learn things faster.

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.
