IMMUNOL 199: Undergraduate Research

Presentations and discussions focus on how current research has progressed from the classic findings in Immunology. This third course in the Immunology core curriculum develops effective presentation skills that are appropriate for a given audience and situation. Students will gain experience in developing and presenting chalk talks, formal presentations, and the all-important elevator pitch on current research. Students will benefit from peer, TA and instructor feedback on all presentations.

IMMUNOL 205: Immunology in Health and Disease

Concepts and application of adaptive and innate immunology and the role of the immune system in human diseases. Case presentations of diseases including autoimmune diseases, infectious disease and vaccination, hematopoietic and solid organ transplantation, genetic and acquired immunodeficiencies, hypersensitivity reactions, and allergic diseases.

IMMUNOL 206: Introduction to Applied Computational Tools in Immunology

Introduction to computational tools for analyses of immunological data sets, including but not limited to single-cell data such as that from flow cytometry or CyTOF, Luminex, and genomic analyses. Students become familiar with major web-based databases and analysis suites for immunological and genomic data; gain a working knowledge of the major software/algorithms for working with major data types, and be able to apply at least one computational tool in these areas to analyze a public data set. Lectures will be followed by a demonstration and interaction session on the topic. Students will complete a computational analysis project and present it to the class.
Terms: Win | Units: 2

Introduction to the major underpinnings of systems immunology: first principles of development of computational approaches to immunological questions and research; details of the algorithms and statistical principles underlying commonly used tools; aspects of study design and analysis of data sets. Prerequisites: CS106a and CS161 strongly recommended.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3

IMMUNOL 209: Translational Immunology

(Open to medical students in the Immunology concentration, graduate students, undergraduates by consent of instructor) Journal style format focusing on current basic immunology research and how it is translated into immunotherapies and clinical trials. Topics include hematopoiesis, transplantation, tolerance, immune monitoring, vaccination, autoimmunity and antibodies, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic pulmonary disease, and asthma. May be repeated for credit.
Terms: Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit

IMMUNOL 210: Immunology Research Seminars for Medical Students

Required for medical students selecting the Immunology Concentration. Attendance at a minimum of ten seminars related to immunology outside of required medical school classes. A one-page essay on each seminar, what was presented and how it relates to a clinical immunologic problem, is required.

Instructors: ; Bollyky, P. (PI)

IMMUNOL 258: Ethics, Science, and Society

This discussion focused Ethics, Science, and Society interactive mini-course will engage Immunology graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty in learning and conversations on topics in responsible research (including animal subjects, authorship, collaboration, conflicts of interest, data management, human subjects, mentor-mentee relationships, peer review, publication, research misconduct, and social responsibility) and diversity in science, informed by readings, case studies, individual reflections, and more. Some of the driving themes in this course include: what it means to do research well and how to and not to achieve this, why doing research well and with integrity is important, and who are researchers currently and who should they be. Prerequisite: MED 255
Terms: Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable 4 times (up to 4 units total)

IMMUNOL 275: Tumor Immunology (CBIO 275)

Tumor Immunology focuses on the mechanisms by which tumors can escape from and subvert the immune system and conversely on the ability of innate and adaptive arms of the immune system to recognize and eliminate tumors. Topics include: tumor antigens, tumor immunosurveillance and immunoediting, tumor immunotherapy (including CAR-T and checkpoint antibodies) and cancer vaccines. Tracks the historical development of our understanding of modulating tumor immune response and discusses their relative significance in the light of current reserach findings. Prerequisite: for undergraduates, human biology or biology core.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3

IMMUNOL 280: Early Clinical Experience in Immunology

Clinical observation experience for medical students in the Immunology Scholarly Concentration. At the end of the observation period, which may span over one to two quarters, the student submits a case observation paper to his/her faculty sponsor. Prerequisite: IMMUNOL 205.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-3 | Repeatable for credit

IMMUNOL 286: Neuroimmunity

Focus is on the homeostatic and pathogenic interactions between the immune and central nervous system. Topics include the role of immune cells and inflammatory mediators in the physiological functions, neural development, neuroexcitation, and the pathogenic impact of inflammatory responses. Prerequisite of Molecular and Cellular Immunology (Bio 230) or Advanced Immunology (Immunol 201). Otherwise, request permission from the course director to enroll.
Terms: Win | Units: 2-3
