Immune & Vaccination Pathways 2
Date: 19/03/18–21/03/18 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 second part of this course focuses on the actual processes that define the immune response and the mechanisms of action of each type of immune cells and pathogens. An extensive formatting system is introduced that include a large array of bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and toxins. Advanced balancing systems are taught to work with the liver enzymes, the four types of hypersensitivity reactions (allergies), transplants and autoimmune diseases. Finally techniques are provided to address stress and enhance or restore functions of the T helper and T killer cells, antigen presenting cells, mast cells and CD molecules.
