The goal of this course is to provide an understanding of the workings of the central cellular and molecular players in the mammalian immune system, at a level appropriate for the non-specializing graduate student. Classes will be run as discussions of the assigned readings. The selective topics will include the molecular basis of B and T cell activation and effector functions, as well as an introduction to the mechanisms of innate immunity. The course grade will be based upon written critiques and in-class oral presentations of seminal papers from the current and classic literature.
