Description: 

Lectures and research topics of the 3-year curriculum: The course introduces participants to and focuses on the immunologic aspects of selected important diseases and the underlying pathophysiology. It does not recapitulate a standard textbook of immunology. It does, however, cover all basic cell types of the immune system and looks at technologies employed in modern immunology.

The focus of the course is on the immunology of viral and bacterial infections, on the immunologic interaction of a tumour and its host, and on transplantation immunology. These topics represent core areas of clinical, translational and basic research at the Faculty of Medicine and in cooperating groups of other faculties. The course covers clinical aspects as well as the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms. Fortnightly lectures and seminars on cellular and molecular mechanisms touch on all cell types of the immune system. Lectures and seminars on molecular immunology focus on classes of receptors, signal transduction pathways and mechanisms of gene regulation, which are pivotal to the function of immune cells. Members of this course also obtain insight into a number of methods of modern immunology. These methods include the imaging of extra- and intracellular events in immune cells, assays analyzing cell-cell interactions, manipulation of immune cells, tissue analysis and finally the use of animal models in immunology.
