Immunology (IMM)

IMM - Immunology Courses

IMM 595 Special Topics 1-6.

IMM 705 Immunotoxicology 2.
Prerequisite: TOX 701.

Concepts in the study of adverse effects of chemicals on the immune system, including allergic responses, autoimmunity and immunosuppression. Significance of immunotoxic effects resulting from environmental or workplace exposure. Role of immunotoxicity in risk assessment.

IMM 751 Immunology 3.
Prerequisite: BCH 451, GN 411, MB 351.

Introduction to mechanisms of immunity in man and animals. Emphasis on interactions between cells of the immune system in production of immune responses and the molecules in control of these interactions.

IMM 757 Comparative Immunology 3.
Prerequisite: MB 751 or MB 441 or BIO 414.

Compare and contrast the immune system structure and function of animal species of agricultural and veterinary significance with that of humans and traditional biomedical model organisms. Discuss key evolutionary differences, how different species use different mechanisms to achieve the same outcomes, and the clinical implications for these differences.

IMM 783 Advanced Immunology 3.
Prerequisite: MB (IMM) 751.

In depth study of the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms of immunity, including antigen processing and presentation, T cell development, initiation of the immune response, effector mechanisms, and immunological memory. The course is designed for advanced graduate students who wish to focus on the current concepts in immunology.

IMM 795 Special Topics 1-6.

IMM 816 Advanced Topics In Immunology 1.

Selected topics of current interest in immunology. A different topic will be covered each semester to focus on the most recent developments in the field.
