Vaccine Immunology

by Peter Delves, PhD

Vaccinations not only are among the most momentous innovations in medical history but also represent a vital component of public health for any modern nation. Also known as immunizations, they leverage the concept of immunological memory by providing antigens that T cells can store for later recognition of the pathogen itself. Vaccination immunology describes this process in more detail.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the principles of vaccination, the components of vaccines, and the types of immunizations available.

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. The parallel study of the microbiology of the pathogens that the different vaccines cover is highly encouraged.
