Medical Immunology


Immunology is a 6 credit-hour course with lecture and laboratory practice, and intended for fellows in disciplines related to immunology in medical schools. The purpose of this course is to acquaint students with basic knowledge of the immune system and immune techniques, and its involvement in health and disease. The lectures cover the major topics of immunology, including immune molecules (antigen, immunoglobulin, complement, cytokines and CDs), immune cells (T cells, B cells, dendritic cells), immune organs, innate and adaptive immunity, hypersensitivity and immune associated diseases (allergy, immunodeficiency and autoimmune diseases, tumor). The laboratory practice helps students to learn some key immunologic techniques and assays, such as serological assay in clinical laboratory diagnosis. In addition, immunology is a rapidly developing and frontier discipline in bio-medical sciences and connecting the basic and clinical medicine. So, new advances in basic and clinic immunology will be incorporated and discussed in lectures. The students are encouraged to ask questions and do discussion with faculty during lecture time or out of class. The grading of this course is depended on the exam, practice reports and attendance of students.
