Introduction to Immunology and Microbial Science - IMS420

Explore mechanisms by which organisms defend themselves against microbes

Course Directors: Juan C. de la Torre and Luc Teyton
Term: Fall
Credits: 3.0

Immunology is the study of the immune system, a complex organ that defends organisms against diseases and microbes. The course is designed to provide a basic overview of the immune system and its regulation. The emphasis will be in discussing basic concepts, as well as their applications. The course will be tailored to accommodate students from all Scripps Research graduate study “tracks.” Students who have never taken an immunology course may find “Introduction to Immunology and Microbial Sciences” to be useful as a first step for the more in-depth “Immunobiology” and the “Virology” elective courses, although this course is not a prerequisite for either course.
