À propos du cours

Course 1 of a three course specialization called Fundamentals of Immunology. Each course in the specialization presents material that builds on the previous course's material. This is the first leg of a three-part journey through the defenses your body uses to keep you healthy. In this part we hope to give you the vocabulary and concepts you need to interact with the medical community and to provide them in a context that makes them memorable. Fundamentals of Immunology introduces students to the basic functions of the adaptive and innate immune systems. The early lectures survey cells, tissues and organs using metaphors, cartoons and models to improve understanding and retention. After describing the form, function, origin and varieties of antibodies, subsequent lectures provide details on the mechanism of the generation of variation. The course provides animations of gene rearrangement and class switching and descriptions of affinity maturation correlated with detailed physical models of antibody structure. The final lecture reviews these concepts in anatomical context. Testing employs multiple choice questions testing facts, concepts, and application of principles. Questions may refer to diagrams, drawing and photographs used in lecture and reproduced in the outline. What You’ll Learn: The difference between adaptive and innate immune systems, the characteristics of various pathogens that they protect you from and the overall strategies employed in this protection. The detailed structure of antibodies and related immunoglobulin receptors, the characteristics and function of the different antibody classes and the mechanism for producing both the recognition regions and stem regions.  Finally, how these structures are coded for in the DNA and expressed in the B cells....

So far the lecturer has been very entertaining and interesting in her explanation of various concepts of immunology. I am excited to finish this course, which will be relevant to my future studies.

Personally, i think the course is pretty well done. First it teaches you the overall view of the inmune sistem which helps you understand how it works. What i didn't like that much is the content in the last 2 weeks, because it takes a kind of difficult approach from the genetic perspective, and it's actually kind of hard tu understand. Maybe it could be explain with a little more of detail o maybe pause in between, So we can be more orientated. From my point of view, i'd get very confused at some points. Anyway, in general thoughts it's a really good course.

a course that will give you deep knowledge into immune and cell functions, antibodies and mutation etc, very good knowhow in this time where all are talking about things they know nothing about, knowledge is power. I strongly recomend this course, but be prepared, it takes a huge amount of attention not to get lost in the journey, the teacher is great and down to earth explaining it.

I'm only auditing, but considering a certificate at some point in the future. It won't be good for other schools as credit, but it might add to my academic portfolio. So far this class is informative, the information is entertaining to learn, a little bit more elementary than I would expect, but good for beginners.

Nice and systematic arrangements of the contents along with the pictorial and model view makes me to understand the contents in the simple and easy way.

It's very important and informative course to understand in the basics and easy way.

It is a nicely crafted course for beginners and for persons who are interested to know more about immunology. Although I had to make some extra efforts to pass the exam, the overall experience was great. It was both learning and fun.

The first three lectures were really great and questions are well constructed. The discussion and presentation got a little confusing on the last two lectures.

Good teaching mechanism, good lecturer. I was a little befuddled by some of the intricacies of the CDR. Not sure exactly what the learning goals were there.

This course was helpful to learn basics in immunology. I liked the way that the instructor used cartoon drawings and models to explain the concept. Thank you!

This was an excellent course. I learnt a lot new terms and the whole session was much more enjoyable due to the great personality of the professor.

The professor takes you through immunology using a collection of memorable metaphors that enable you to visualize the concepts clearly.

G​reat course. However, I wish I was taught week 6 before week 3 4 5. It was confusing not knowing the whole picture first.

The quiz are really hard specially at 5th and 6th week syllabus. However, this course dives deep into immunology.
