This course concentrates on the molecular and genetic basis of lymphocyte receptor signal transduction, activation, and maturation. Emphasis will also be placed on the rold of cytokines and interaction molecules for antigen recognition and cytotoxic mechanisms. The immunogenetics of MCH and non MCH molecules and their impact upon immune responses will also be discussed. Through assigned reading and discussion of notable scientific literature in these areas, students will gain an understanfing of the current concepts.
