Immune & Vaccination Pathways 1
Date: 15/03/18–18/03/18 Location: Kirchzarten (de)
This advanced workshop series explores the various aspects of the immune system from cell physiology, differentiation and division to the components and mechanisms of action of both the innate and the adaptive immune system. These courses aim to facilitate students’ understanding of the different steps and types of immune responses and to demonstrate the effects of stress on the body’s defence mechanisms.
The first part of this series covers the biochemical and physiological aspects of the immune system from that of the blood itself and the various cells involved in immune responses to the processes involved in ageing and development of cell aberrations such as cancer. Specialised techniques are provided that address the presence and effects of pathogens such as virus and bacteria and the impacts of vaccination on the body systems.
