Innate Immune System

by Peter Delves, PhD

The innate immune response is characterized by a “generalized” set of reactions to pathogens, lacking the specificity and long-term immunological memory that the adaptive response has. Despite this, the innate and adaptive immune responses work in very close association.

In this course, the student will be walked through the steps of the innate immune response, the phases of response, acute and chronic inflammation, and the complement system.

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.
