PATH 8280: Clinical Immunology and Immunopathology
PATH 8280 provides students with an introduction to clinical conditions caused by aberrant performance of the immune system, including their clinical presentations and consequences. Students will appreciate the pathological and immune dysfunction responsible for each disease and important areas of contemporary immune research that address critical components of each disease’s pathogenesis. Discussion centers on contemporary immune research that address critical components of each disease’s pathogenesis using current literature. Students will propose, delineate, and critique a focused research plan. With approval of the course directors, advanced students and postdoctoral fellows may take responsibility for selecting a topic and/or serving as lecturers and discussion leaders, providing them with teaching per week for a full semester.
