IMM Immunology Courses
Credit course for supervised participation in faculty research project. See page 40 for details.
The basic principles of immunology; tissues and cells of the immune system; cell biology of the humoral and cell-mediated immune responses; immunogenetics; immunoglobulin structure, function and biosynthesis; immunological techniques; immunopathology; infection and immunity; transplantation, autoimmunity and tumour immunology.
The fundamental principles of immunology; tissues and cells of the immune system; humoral and cell-mediated immune responses; immunogenetics; immunoglobulin structure, function and biosynthesis; immunopathology; infection and immunity; transplantation, autoimmunity and tumour immunology. Intended for students specializing in immunology and related programs, and requiring a more intensive background in biochemistry and molecular biology than IMM334Y1.
Molecular mechanisms involved in the generation and expression of specific immunity including the structure, function and biosynthesis of immunoglobulins, the complement systems, transplantation antigens and membrane signalling events. (Given by the Departments of Biochemistry and Immunology)
Hematopoiesis, myelopoiesis, lymphopoiesis, a study of the development of cells involved in the immune system including their ontogeny, physical, molecular, and biochemical characteristics, regulation of differentiation and maturation, positive and negative selection of lymphocytes, DNA rearrangement.
A study of the cells involved in the immune response, the nature of cellular and molecular interactions that govern immunity and self tolerance, the nature of the effector cells in immunity and genetic control of immune responses.
Application of basic principles acquired from IMM334Y1/IMM335Y1; immunological procedures used in research and diagnostic laboratories; rudiments of etiology, pathogenesis, and laboratory diagnosis of diseases of immune system; principles of immunological diagnostic procedures in some infectious diseases; instruction through lectures, practical exercises, video tapes, student presentations.
An opportunity for specialized research in Immunology under the supervision of a member of the Faculty. There are no pre- or co-requisites, although preference is given to Immunology Specialist students.
