Summary

 

Course/Module

Lecturer, Advanced Immunology. (Undergraduate)

Lecturer, Advanced Topics in Infection and Immunity. (Undergraduate)

Lecturer, MRes Systems & synthetic biology. (Postgraduate)

Challenges in Cell Biology - LIFE95006

Aims

CCB will give students an understanding of current cell biology research challenges and the approaches being developed to tackle them. It will discuss areas of cell biology that are new to second year Biochemists and so complement their previous cell biology teaching as well as introduce themes that will be developed in several final year courses.  

Role

Lab Demonstrater

Advanced Topics in Immunity and Infection - LIFE96004

Role

Lecturer

Advanced Immunology - LIFE96003

Aims

This course follows on from the 2nd year Biological Sciences Immunology course. However, as Biochemistry students have not covered so much Immunology in their 2nd year, there will be two revision lectures to begin the course. The course will cover six main topics:

1. The cellular basis of detection and killing in mammalian innate immunity and comparative evolution of immune responses.

2. The molecular basis of innate immunity in plants and how it comapres to mammalian innate immunity

3. Innate lymphoid cells – where do they come from and what do they do

4. Mechanisms of cellular immunoregulation – the development, plasticity and function of regulatory T cells

5. The role of gut microbiota in regulating immune responses and in disease

6. Cancer immunology, the role of the immune system in cancer development and how we can use immunotherapies to treat cancer

Role

Lecturer

Immunology - LIFE95011

Aims

The course provides a detailed overview of the organisation, development and regulation of the immune system in health and disease.  It assumes a basic knowledge of cell biology and immunology.
