Immunology BSc (Hons)

UK

What will I learn?

Immunology is a highly dynamic field that impacts topical and emerging issues within both the biomedical and biological science disciplines.Our BSc Immunology course will see you learn about the components, principles and mechanisms of a healthy immune system, and how they co-ordinate to mount safe and appropriate protection against infection. You will establish how the immune system can distinguish between self and non-self targets, how it can tune responses to protect against different types of infectious agents and how responses vary when these agents are encountered in different anatomical sites, such as in the skin, gut and lung.In addition to establishing the workings of a healthy immune system, the course will also address what underlies situations of inappropriate or insufficient immunity, such as allergy, autoimmunity and immune deficiency. Other topics include the current and emerging use of immune molecules in diagnostic and clinical intervention strategies, including therapeutic manipulation of the immune system for cancer treatment, vaccine development and transplant tolerance.The flexible, modular nature of our course means you can follow special interests within this broad topic at the same time as you build your core subject-specific knowledge. We are a core centre for Immunology research in the UK and as such a range of world leading lab options are available for you to explore for project work.
