Our BSc Immunology course will see you learn about the components, principles and mechanisms of the human immune system, and how they co-ordinate to mount safe and appropriate protection against infection. This is a dynamic field that impacts topical and emerging issues within both the biomedical and biological science disciplines. The course will address what underlies situations of inappropriate or insufficient immunity, such as allergy, autoimmunity and immune deficiency. You will consider discrimination and tuning of immune responses to meet the challenges of different anatomical sites, such as in the skin, gut and lung. Other topics include the current and emerging use of immune molecules in diagnostic and clinical intervention strategies, including the therapeutic manipulation of the immune system in cancer treatment, vaccine development, and transplant tolerance. The flexible, modular nature of our course means you can follow special interests within this broad topic while you build core biochemical, molecular and subject-specific knowledge.
