Unit of Study MEDC2001 - Immunology (2022)
Show me unit information for year
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
discuss immune system development, innate and adaptive immunity, and the generation of immune memory and tolerance
outline blood cell development, including different cell types and their roles in haemostasis and coagulation
describe the major histocompatibility complex molecules, their gene subtypes,and their importance in tissue transplantation
explain immune cell activation, including the influence different groups of antigen have on this process, and on vaccine development
compare and contrast dysfunctions of the immune system
generate, present and critically analyse experimental immunological data to solve scientific problems in the biomedical setting
