Mesenchymal stem cells seeded on electrospun polycaprolactone nanofibers.

Advanced Topics: Innate Immunity

This course will focus on the several aspects of host innate immunity against infection. Topics will include the conceptual basis for innate versus adaptive immunity, induction of innate immunity by pathogens, signaling by innate immune receptors, effector cells of the innate immune system, secreted effectors of innate immune signaling, and subversion of innate immune signaling by pathogens. Molecular Virology and Comprehensive Immunology are highly recommended but are not prerequisites for the course. Spring semesters.
