BIOL 333 - Immunology and Hematology

(4)
FA. How does the human body defend against pathogens? How does our defense system distinguish between our own cells and foreign invaders? This study of immunology examines mechanisms underlining the intricate work of the defense network including the innate and adaptive immune systems. Practical topics such as vaccines, AIDS, allergy, transplantation, and autoimmunity also will be discussed. The course includes lectures, class discussions of scientific papers, labs, and an independent research project. Hematologic concepts and practices are addressed in laboratory sessions. Prerequisites: BIOL 161 (or BIOL 141), BIOL 230, and BIOL 250, and CHEM 253 (or CHEM 261 and CHEM 262).
