Immune System: Overview and Cells

by Peter Delves, PhD

The immune system is a complex collection of tissues and cells that work in unison to protect the human body from invading pathogens. Through its cellular components, the immune system deploys myriad strategies and mechanisms to reduce the spread of pathogens and their products.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the organization of the immune system, its strategies for dealing with pathogens, and the main cellular components of the innate and adaptive responses.

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—and the histology of blood and lymphoid tissues.

Organization of the Immune System
By Antonio M. on 17. February 2022 for Organization of the Immune System

Great communication skills, very didactic. Sometimes, when a person knows a lot, he or she do not have the ability to pass that information forward, but this professor does it really well.
