In this short course you will study the Scientific Basis of Allergy, focussing on the immune mechanisms underlying allergic diseases and how this relates to the origin, clinical presentation, diagnostic approach and potential therapeutic and prevention targets. 

Teaching delivery format

The course has been designed in an innovative format combining asynchronous materials (e.g. pre-recorded sessions, reading lists and web-based resources) to revise in your own time, and live interactive sessions both online and on campus which will include focused discussions and case-based elements. A range of formats will be used to encourage active learning, including expert panel question & answer sessions, group work, workshops, role-play, pro-con debates and scenario-based sessions.
